Gen. David H. Petraeus could never have been more right. The unresolved Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the source of current instability in the Middle East and the principal motivation of Islamic terrorism elsewhere in the world including in our country the Philippines. Unless the Israeli people renounces the self-destructive politics of its far right politicians, Israel may soon find itself at the brink of extinction with no sympathy from the rest of the world. Lest Israel forgets, it is the sympathy of the world that has allowed its people to rise from the holocaust and to found a nation against all odds in a hostile region. Unfortunately, Israel is wasting away this capital with unnecessary arrogance inspired by extremists in its midst. Israel must soon be a citizen of the world for its own sake.
