I agree with giggles that Israel needs to reach out to nroghbouring populations, rather than just the ruling class. Though I think why the current regimes of Egypt, Israel and Lebanon have fallen is because the populations of each country have not seen any real increase in their standards of living as a result of having close ties with the west and israel. You blame the unresolved palestinian/Israeli conflict for everything (although it is big cause). The ruling regimes did not do enough to show the populations the benefit of having close ties with the west and Israel. Maybe there are none.
