THE REALITY IS IT FACES NO EXTERNAL THREATS:

Israel expects no reaction to Syria strike, official says (AP, December 10, 2014)

Israel doesn't expect a response by Syria or Lebanon to an airstrike in Syria attributed to Israel earlier this week since they are too tied up with that country's bloody civil war and can't afford to open another front, a senior Israeli military officer said Wednesday.

The officer said Hezbollah guerrillas had the capability, but not the motivation, at this time to harm Israel and there was no "logic" to picking a fight with Israel while it was knee-deep in battling a Sunni insurgency.
