As the new year begins this week, Israel has plenty of reasons to worry. Nevertheless, it would be a mistake to let the storm clouds obscure some of the past year’s encouraging developments.

First, our enemies are more disunited than ever before. With Hezbollah seeking to arrest Hamas operatives in Lebanon and al-Qaida threatening to attack Hezbollah, with Sunni jihadists battling Hezbollah in Syria and Egyptians who oppose the peace with Israel nevertheless backing their army’s crackdown on arms smuggling to Gaza, terrorists groups are less able to target Israel.
