    The concerns of Aluf Benn (Israel's safety) by maintaining minimum relationships with authoritarian leaders are directly connected to Israel's shortsighted and paranoid foreign and domestic policies. The majority of Egyptian citizens are under 30 yrs/ old without employment. This and the resulting poverty are what threatens Israel - not losing an authoritarian leader who uses secret police to torture and roundup people striving for democracy. Instead of waging conflict resolution and moving psychologically FORWARD after the Holocaust, Israel continued to defy all peace negotiations with one excuse after another. Real conflict resolution was never built with the speed of how the settlements were built. The prevailing attitude of "they want to kill us, " was encouraged, especially by the religious and exclusive undemocratic theology and men guided by their testosterone instead of their intelligence and wisdom.
