To me, because of their unbridled prejudice and bigotry, the ME has no chance of surviving either as a greater jihadi mass or as a cooperating economic entity. Poor economies with no hope of improving could lead to jihad or civil war. If USA can prevent jihad against the west, civil war in ME countries may be likely as poor people may fight each other into extinction (human history, human nature?). I don't feel sorry for these ME countries. They have been given every chance to modernize, prosper and to recognize Israel. Bush sounds the last chance and the last warning before it all deteriorates. Things look worse for Israel because things look worse for the whole ME and Israel is part of the region. Thank you Haaretz for giving us a glimpse of reality in your articles which is much needed for Israelis to survive and let's hope you help them survive.
