Mr. Defence Minister, you only have to look at your country's history seeing through lens of logic to find out out that it was anything but a stabilizer. Arab countries have offered genuine peace for land taken in 1967 for the past 30-35 years according to american officials. Your country never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity of peace under the pretext of security and "natural growth of population". Lastly, you don't have to look further to see how Israel gave weapons to both Iran and Iraq to intenfify damages on both sides during the 1980's to ensure its superiority not to mention Israel's involvement in Darfur and Southern Sudan, currently in Iraq, Kurdustan rebels against Turkey and ongoing espionage and assasinations. Nonetheless, 60% of Israelis are in favor of peace or even more, there are pro-peace israeli organizations in addition to academics and intellectuals who deserve to be better represented instead of conservative rightists for a more stable Israel and Middle East.
