Removing Israel (if it were possible) is not going to solve the third world problem of its neighbors any more than removing apartheid in South Africa has brought employment to the millions of black Africans. Minuscule Israel is not the problem. Apply the principles of the renaissance, give genuine freedom to women, educate your wretched populations instead of indoctrinating them with superstitious rubbish and stop blaming others for you predicament; this is surely more productive than blaming tiny Israel for all your woes. If the people who constantly criticize Israel were genuinely concerned for the plight of the downtrodden, then a good place to start would be the countries of North Africa, Sudan and most of the Near East. Envy is a very powerful emotion.
