TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY RON BOUSSO: (FILES) A picture dated September 8, 2002 showing a partial view of the Dimona nuclear power plant in the southern Israeli Negev desert. In 1948, the fledgling Israeli armed forces defeated seven Arab armies to forge the Jewish state.

Indisputably the region's best equipped military power, the army has found in recent years that even its vast arsenal could not secure victory in successive and drawn-out conflicts against insurgents hidden among the civilian population.
