An interesting opinion. However, I would appreciate clarification of a few points. 1. what do you mean when you say Israeli arrogance and and aggression ? Is the reaction to the over-the-border attack north of Eilat arrogance and aggression ? Is the reaction to mortars, qassam and grad missles arrogance and aggression ? If you consider them to be just that, what do you suggest Israel do in reaction to these ? Sit back and let them happen without any consequences to the perpetrators ? 2. Do you forget that the Egyptian street, and also the Egyptian intellectual and professional community has always been virulently anti-Israel ? The resolutions passed by the lawyers guild ? And other professional bodies ? And do you think this is going to change if Israel does nothing ? Did you forget that one of the favorite tactics of any Arab government that is having internal problems is to blame Israel for something ? 4. Where has the "Arab Spring" brought democracy ? So far, nowhere. And, IMO, it will not happen. In Egypt, the military is beginning to become more aggressive against the protestors. In Tunisia, where all of this started, do we have a democracy after all this time ? You think democracy is going to come to Syria after Assad goes ? Democracy in the Gulf states ? Saudi, Yemen ? Even in the major focus today - Libya, nothing is known as to what or who will replace Qadaffi. So in response to your interesting editorial, I would like to see a response to the questions raised. And no, I am not a right winger, or even a left winger. I see Myself as a realist that sees both right and wrong opinions on both sides of the political spectrum.
