chanah. you know without oil ,no country can live as well as they do now. to keep the oil coming ,the powerful country has to keep the leaders of the arab happy somtimes. and to keep every thing balanced ,you need wach dog to keep an eye on the arab country so they don't get strong and powerful and controll the west by the oil and weapons. and here comes israel. that is why no arab country is allaow to have more weapons or money than israel. it is poltics and i dont hate you for that but i wish the arab have better leaders and government. and in this piont i agree with you that arab are not as great as we hope . but this is life . one day for you and another on you.
