Israel is no more worthy of it today than it was a week ago. Looks like maybe the boys have woken up to how deeply they've mired Israel in swill. But does that mean they'll change the nifty little ways have taken Israel there? Oh no! Instead they're trying to sell their cheapened "only democracy in the mideast" card. Sure is lonely around there lately, isn't Bibi? And who would have EVER thought Egypt...right? You've driven Turkey away, Jordan's probably pretty close - because being friends with you is a political liability for the king - oh but hell no, those settlements aren't an obstacle to peace, are they? Nor the occupation, or the oppression of the Palestinians...nahhh! None of those! It's just that no one in the middle-east likes your breath! Right? That's it! Has to be! You never made peace with Egypt - you made peace with the regime. Meanwhile, over the 33 years since, the people of Egypt became fixated on the same thing as the rest of the world, and in those 33 years you've YET to make friend of the Egyptian people. Its that way all around you. You'll never have peace with your neighbors, until you change your ways - and until that time, it doesn't matter WHO'S in power among your neighbors! Hope you guys realize that the western democracies may not want to associate too closely with the form "democracy" you've created in Israel?
