In my opinion, this post might get no replies, due to intractable alienation from Jews and their concerns, in my opinion, and the cognitive dissonance of an Israel that doesn't typify the believed stereotype of the timid Jew, again in my opinion. So, I'll offer my simple thought in the way of a Jewish joke:
A minister, priest and rabbi were on an ecumenical fishing trip, on a rowboat in the middle of a lake. Suddenly, from behind a cloud a deep, booming voice was heard saying, "The end of the world is near. In two weeks it will start to rain for hundreds of days. The water will rise hundreds of feet. The end is near. Go tell your respective flocks."
The minister, priest and rabbi looked at each other and each said they'd better do as told. The fishing trip ended, as each clergyman went to deliver the message to their respective flock.
The minister called an emergency meeting of his congregation. Told them the news, and they each left the church saddened, hoping they'll all meet in Heaven, and left singing their Sunday favorite hymn.
The priest also told his parishoners. He ended by saying that hopefully they'll all meet in Heaven, and in five minutes he'll be available for Confession.
The rabbi told his congregants somewhat long-winded - "And then God said the waters will rise hundreds of feet, and the end is near..." A lady in the front row asked, "Rabbi, what does this all mean?" The rabbi thought a moment, and then replied, "What can it mean? We have two weeks to learn how to live under water!"
That might just be what the "deal" means. Israel has a decade to learn to live with the threat of a nuclear threat. However, I'll still bet on Israel.
