    all those extremist-dinosaurs - mubarak, assad, nasrallah, haniyeh, mashal, bibi and lieberman - have to leave... they are stuck in the past, and have lost any grip to reality... people cant identify with their words, their demands, or their plans - as far as any of them has one... maybe, all of them would be GLAD, when being attacked by some giant enemy - now, pls... they actually are or at least feel threatened - by their own people... their clock is ticking, and they apply every violence, to stay in power... they dont fit into this time anymore... nobody wants to hear this permanent war- and fearmongering stuff... people do have and do want to have other things to do - other than murder, or occupying and oppressing someone... this generation want to study, travel, chat, facebook, to twitter, and not be ashamed to tell where they are from... they dont want to be seen as terrorists or just a bunch of idiots, by the rest of the world... i think, the underlieing is a "shift of values"... its not worth much to have a big, deterrriorating army... its important who we are, what sort of people we are... the world is open, reachable for everyone, not just by the net... and so everyone wants to be(come) part of it, too...
