Long-term Prospects for Israel

The Atlantic has this year-old appraisal of Israel's long-term prospects by Benjamin Schwartz. Summary: not good. I don't have any particular insight into whether the just-signed cease-fire is a good or bad deal, but unless it has some really strong and enforceable measures that will prevent Hezbollah from simply rebuilding and reloading, we will be reading a few years from now about a repeat of this month's war. I see misery in the Middle East for the foreseeable future, barring a miracle. Whatever else we may do or think about this, Christians should be begging for that miracle.
