    israel did not put brutal dictators in charge of neighbours. israel would like nothing more than a true democracy among neighbours, a democracy in which human rights, religious rights, political and social rights are respected. your demand for dignity for neighbours contradicts your admissions that the neighbours are ruled by dictators. regarding the present events unfolding in egypt, two comments: mubarak has been willing to respect the peace treaty between israel and egypt, a fact which is crucial for regional and even world peace; israel will be happy to work with any duly elected government of egypt provided that government contunues to respect the peace treaty between israel and egypt in all of its particulars. the government of israel basis its alliances, if possible, on people to people relations. when unfortunately any country anywhere is ruled by a dictator, then israel, like any other country, has no choice but to deal with that dictator. israel is not in a position to impose democracy on any neighbouring states.
