Is that a cynical statement? 99.9% of the middle east is made of multiple arab states. Israel is a tiny state with 0.1% the land and population right in the middle. It was invaded multiple times from all fronts in the last 70 years and you have the audacity to claim ISRAEL is the one treating her neighbors as potential enemies? It took 50 years to make two of her enemies realize they could not best her and make peace with her, a peace they're now trying to undermine, while any time we gave back land it came back at us with a rocket in the face and more threats to take over all of Israel.
