Old habits are hard to break, and an habit, born of 20 century of exile, of always feeling victimized, most of the time very rightly, seems to be the hardest of all to break. "The hope to eliminate Israel by Israel's Arab neighbors." (Anat) Israel has four neighbour states - and one stateless people. Of these four states, two have made their peace with us, a third one is practically begging to start negotiating with us, and the fourth is only waiting for a peace treaty to be signed by his own domineering neighbour, to follow suit and sign his own treaty with Israel. To any honest person, that would seem to be a very bizarre way for its neighbours to eliminate the Jewish state, provided, of course, her/his sense of logic has not been twisted by decades of brainwashing.
