That is a large army for a small country.

Everybody in Israel must serve in the IDF reserves and spend at least 40 days a year every year until the age of 40. Israel's population is 9.2 Million people as of yesterday. I don't know how many of them are under the age of 40 but all those who were in the reserves have been called into active duty. And many (over 100,000 from what I've gathered thus far) living abroad have also returned to join the ranks of the active forces too.

They also get a number of Americans who go under birthright citizenship. Possibly from other countries too.

From the numbers I've heard, over 100,000 Israeli have returned to Israel to fight as patriots for their country's existence. 

Initially, Israel had to scramble around to find military gear (helmets, rifles, uniforms, bullet protection vests, etc.) for all those returning, but they've seem to have gotten that under control. They didn't expect that number to return to fight for their country, but they did. And now, they're all armed and prepared for the battle ahead. That's what bumped their numbers from 200,000 to 300,000!

Biden's and Blinken's call for a pause in the war is just a megaphone of the Hamas... List to the videoclip below. The pause/ceasefire will ONLY occur after the Hamas threat has been eliminated. They have yet to be totally eliminated and in fact, the war on the ground is only in it's 2nd day. So they will not stop until Hamas is eradicated such that they cannot cause another grievous attack like they did on Oct 7, again.

Once the threat has been eradicated, a pause and perhaps ceasefire might occur but only after the threat has been eliminated.

That is still a small number if Iran and Syria get into the fight. However, the Israeli army may be the best trained force in the world.

I heard an analysis as to why Biden made those clearly anti semetic calls for a cease fire.  There are many more voters siding with Hamas than with Israel. He is out scouting for votes.

I highly doubt that Iran will have boots on the ground in Israel until after it has been toppled... but which per Biblical scripture won't happen. But they will use their proxies in Yemen (Houthi), Gaza (Hamas, Islamic Jihad), West Bank (Hezbollah), Lebanon (Hezbollah) and Syria (a mixture of ISIS remnants and other factions).

Yemen is too far away, and thus direct military intervention is out of the question, but remember, the Houthi have fired rockets in the past at both Israel and Saudi Arabia.

But Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt all border Israel.

One thing Israel has by its side is "God"!

Israel does prevail. But those other countries don’t believe in prophecy.

Prophecy aside... Israel has the right to protect its own sovereignty. When attacked, you take the threat out. 

If any other country in the world had said that the US should pause or seek a ceasefire against the Al Quida right after the WTC building attack, do you think the US would have listened?

This is Israel's 9/11/2001!!! Let them handle it in their own way without any intervention!

FWIW
