    I would imagine that as an Israeli, living next to a democratic state is way better than living next to tyrannically run state. The peace treaties you had with Jordan and Egypt were dictated, and the so called peace never existed except on paper. Now give this a try, let us get a democratic Arab states, then instead of dealing with a corrupt tyrants, you will deal with people and therefore you get a commitment and a steady situation for ever. If you keep helping these tyrant regimes in Egypt and Jordan to stay in power, eventually, they will be replaced with your worst chose of neighbors that is either anarchy or a very radical religious state. Democracy can never turn into a radical state; the Arab society is so diverse, that we can absorb radicals within a democratic body just like you do with your radicals. Instead of sending them to jail, killing them, oppressing them, we will include them and they will contribute, but will never dominate, and then you will never hear slogans like “death to America” or “death to Jews”.
