Israel farts around with the non-esxistent threat of Iran nuking it, whinging about existential threats, when right next door there is an existential potential threat that could become real any day. Israel has failed to make anyone in Egypt love it, and if Egypt turns hostile, Israel is suddenly back in the bad days of the 1960s and 1970s when it faces a REAL existential threat not a fake Iranian one drummed up by Likudnik extremists.

For a start, it could sack the foreign minister who threatened to bomb the Aswan Dam.
