    Israel's enemies are trying to inflict "death by a thousand cuts." Large-scale attacks are generally done by people who think they have a reasonable chance of succeeding. If that doesn't work there's guerrilla warfare, a technique the US used successfully in the Revolutionary War and War of 1812. The ancient Scythians used it against the Persons: hit and run. That's a variant of death by a thousand cuts. If your forces aren't even powerful enough for that, there's terrorism, the main purpose of which is to provoke the enemy into overreacting.

    There is also something called war by proxy, as in the Korean and Vietnam conflicts, where superpowers fought one another indirectly through smaller countries.

    Right now Iran seems to be fighting a war by proxy against Israel, letting the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and Hezbollah in southern Lebanon do the fighting and dying.

    Considering the last time a couple countries tried a full-on attack.... their armies were destroyed in less than 3 days.... I think you have an idea of a) the likelihood of a "large scale" attack... and b) the reason why Israel's enemies have resorted to the cowardly strategy of terrorism since then...

    Dont be ridiculous. Israel has a superior military. No country could or would want to attack Israel. It wouldnt be cost-efficient or feasible in any way. The U.N. has attacked Israel numerous times for illegal actions.

    Just about Nil. Israel has spies in almost every country in the world. They have infiltrated every terrorist group as members, as well as spying in other middle east Countries. They have a global network of spies.
