he is simply correct! What is wrong with his view that Israel needs security guarantees. The entire mess of the Arab/Israeli conflict has at its root the complete contempt and disrespect of Jews that the Arab world has and its delusion that Jews are simply Europeans who are complete strangers in the Judeah & Samariah. That is far more true of the Pals. As to defending Mubarek, Israelis & much of the world understands that with some societies, irresponsible, ignorant, vengeful and visicious societies, freedom is just another world for chaos and destruction. Netanyahus point is not that Egyptians were well off under Mubarek. That, properly, is not his primary concern. His concern is Israeli security. What he says on that issues is actually incontrovertible.
