    "Do you really see Israel allowing the destruction of their country?" - actually, what you are asking is wether the zionists will allow the destruction of their iron grip on Israel. A typical misconception - tying the fate of a regime to the fate of the country as a whole. The Afrikaaners in South Africa thought the same, and they were also wrong; their apartheid regime is long gone but South Africa is still there. "Do you expect Jews to live under Sharia law?" - they do in Iran, Bev. They don't seem to be complaining. As I said, you are conflating two very different things. You do this because Israel is built around a paradox; it wants to be a democracy, but it also wants to be a Jewish state. It can't be both without denying basic human rights to the non-Jewish majority who also live in (or ejected to the periphery of) Palestine. And yet, somehow, you think that makes the zionists the moral and righteous ones, don't you?
