The situation that Israel is in at present can be compared to the famous Bible story of the young King David who had met his match against the giant named Goliath. Young King David, who was much smaller then this giant not only did not wear any armor, but he used a slingshot and a rock to take down Goliath. This same lesson should come to mind when Israel was up against the Arab/Muslim nations in 1948, 1956, 1967, and 1973, when Israel as David had beaten back these Goliaths. It can happen again. Do not underestimate Israel's power to do so. It would be wise for Iran to do a little studying of history.
