Following remarks by Iranian President Ahmadinejad that "Israel will collapse like the Soviet Union,” Al-Jazeera Magazine (1/4/07) published an article yesterday elaborating on the current strategy to bring about Israel's collapse.

The article stated that “the political turmoil that hit Israel following the slap it received from Hizbullah and the sinking approval ratings of the Israeli Premier could be another reason that would lead to its end”.

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki referred to the scandal of Israeli President Moshe Katsav, and said that such "ethical deviation" showed that Israel “internally, and regionally from the outside, is cracking and falling apart."

The Reut Institute contends that these statements by Iranians and leaders of the Resistance Network (such as Hamas and Hizbullah), exemplify the "Strategy of Implosion", whose goal it is to bring to the internal collapse of the State of Israel .

This strategy is based on the "Spider-web" theory, which predicts the internal collapse of Israel due to socio-economic problems. The corruption and sex scandal affairs in which Israeli politicians are involved, are being percieved as an indication to the near implosion of the Israeli society.

Iran and the Resistance Network, are promoting the Implosion strategy through the following means:

  • Basic de-legitimatization of Israel, such as Holocaust denial or anti-Zionism;

  • Promotion of one Palestinian/Islamist/Arab state as the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which is supported by demographic trends;

  • Preventing the implementation of the "two-state solution" throughterror that obstruct the establishment of a sustainable separation between Israel and the Palestinians;
