    Well -that may be the case, but as far as it concerns Israel I'm not holding my breath waiting for any change in Libyan policy. Changing the regimes in Arab countries does not change the basic attitudes of the people. Indeed, if Egypt is an indicator, the change is for the worse for us. I think that the rest of the western world should also not rejoice too soon. The hostility towards the free democracies is deeply felt. What the West understands as democracy has a somewhat different interpretation in the Arab and/or Muslim world. The treatment of Mubarak, for example, is little short of barbaric. It should never be forgotten that he enjoyed a considerable amount of support from his own people for decades. Many – if not most – are turning against him now because it is politically and socially comfortable for them to do so now under the spotlight of the world media. If anyone is expecting a more enlightened approach to a free society from these Arab revolutionaries they will be sorely disappointed. For us, here in Israel, the situation with the Arab states can only get worse.
