Dear Mr Arens, If the "only democracy in the Middle East" would be, allegedly , the state of Israel, then what about the Lebanon ?, in which, a president is elected every six years and a parliament every four years, also in which presidents do leave at the end of their terms. The difference (with Israel) is also that the Lebanon: A) never occupied any body's home nor any other country B) never annexed villages nor any properties C) never bombed its neighbours D) does not have 11.547 political prisoners. E) never did build a wall around human-beings F) has all its minorities represented in its system G) is giving refuge to the victims of the State of Israel since 1948 Therefore if there is only one democratic state : then it is rather the Republic of the Lebanon and if there are two ; then the Republic of the Lebanon is the better one. Also don't forget that YOU introduced terrorism to the Middle East by bombing the King David Hotel, and by killing innocent people in Deir Yassin, so please abstain from giving us lessons on morality.
