Israel is a dominant power in the area, no doute about it. Arab dictatorial regimes are enabling that and are enhancing it. Israel should after all consider the intelligence of the world. The Dead Sea is shared by Palestinians and Jordanians. Israel should not take all the potentail benefits for itself. Israel also acted arrogantly with regards to oil and gas resources in the Mideterranee. Turkey and Hezbullah would not allow Israel hegemony in there because they have the interest of their peoples as a sacred right. PLO and Jordan's regimes are friend to isreal to say it politely. They do not care about their national rights and Israel does not respect them at all. But all that is hopefully changing. Arab peoples would regain their freedom and would defend their rights.
