    After we will make peace with Abbas. The fight with Hamas will continue, providing the UN and all the world an excuse to crucify Israel. If and when we make peace with Hamas, the world will focus on Israeli-Arabs requiring we let them serve in sensitive positions in the IDF. Even after that, the world will scrutiny us on the notion of "Jewish State". Requiring we change our hymn, flag, day of rest and so on. But this is not over here. If we manage to keep the Western Wall inside Israel. The world will require this becomes an international site. During all this period, terror attacks against Israel will be legitimate, and Israel's retaliations not. After they will strip us to all that can be traced to Judaism, Europe will finally come to rest: Jews will again be the "wandering Jew". For there is no other explanation for the immense scrutiny, an insignificantly small state as Israel gets from international organizations.
