    I think Jews have been enlightened by the trip through the Diaspora where countries have fought for Liberty and Freedom and a democratic form of government. You of all people Ibrahim have seen democracy in action,of course its not perfect but it is a reasonable work in progress as opposed to all other systems. I look forward to seeing the ME change to meet the worlds move this way.It will be better for the 'street' as up to now they have had little power with the authoritarian systems they have experienced.It cannot be imposed from outside but it can be supported by outside. I hope to see this type of system take hold. Meanwhile a declaration of a new cocept with a new philosophy is good.But it would take a massive push within the arab community to make it stick as I think the problem will come from within rather than from outside. The silent majority in israel is more concerned about the quality of life in israel than a greater israel and the arabs should also feel the same.
