First of all things HAVE changed. With the advent of the information age,it is very difficult these days to just give people a spin like the dictators used to. As time goes along people in Arab countries will expect more from their leaders. Yes there is always the ultra fanatics but they are overall a small minority. Israel will always have the power in the area as a deterrent to this Islamic absolutism. It comes doen to trust in humankind or not and thats not black and white because if we dont try we can never know.It can be in stages. Non Jews talk about conspiracies of Jews but Jews talk about Arab conspiracies.I believe most arab families just want to live reasonably in peace like most humans. The dictators will always be using scapegoats but that will all slowly melt under the force of the internet,where people can read international news. Sharon thinks its time and so do I.
