there was a recent article which said that netanyahu was bluffing
and that he has not met with his war cabinet for weeks, and that
there has been no major preparation for war.
however, the reality shows that indeed there is a war coming
up over the horizon, and as u said it: this is it! and i think isreal
will go to war and settle it 'once and for all', and the war will
only last for a few weeks, anyway.
this article confirms it would last for 1 month;
