I predicted and posted about a massive change in the Middle East for several years. In particular Egypt with 25% of the Arab population, once it falls, the rest will follow like a house of cards. Across the Middle East, the equation changed overnight, now authoritarian governments are afraid of its people not the other way around. Do not assume that Saudi Arabia is shielded from falling. My posts carried one theme that is Israel has neither the demographic nor the geographic depth to maintain its dominance or its occupation and its best chances for long term survival is to make peace wit its neighbors before it is too late and it finds millions of angry Arabs and Muslims at its doorsteps looking for revenge. The sea of changes started, it may take several years to stabilize, but the outcome will not be friendly to Israel as evident from the public demonstrations against Israel across the Arab world during its wars in Gaza and Lebanon. Israel had multiple chances to live in peace with its neighbors, it rejected a very generous peace offer in 2002, instead it chose to live by the sword. Israel made its bed, now its time to sleep in it. Only time will tell if that was the correct choice since the peace train has left the station. Israel lived without existential fear since it made peace with Egypt. This fear coupled with economic hardship due to extended military spending will become the new Israeli reality in the next few years.
