Mr. Arens doesn't believe in peace with the Arabs, and this is why he voted against the peace with Egypt (engineered by his party chief Begin), and opposed a withdrawal from any territory Israel conquered, including Lebanon! Now, in the face of the Arab Spring, he sees the Winter coming. This man is a parody of Shakespeare, "If Spring comes, can winter be far behind?" So far, nothing happened that should cause this dark "vision". An Islamic (not Islamist) party won the elections in Tunisia. As they say, they believe in Democracy, not in the Caliphate. Arabs are religious people and their political culture will be influenced by their religion, as happens in Turkey (which they take as their model). Israel has its own religious parties, some are fundamentalist Haredim but others are less so. So what is the big deal? But Arens has his fundamental beliefs about the Arabs. Would you buy a pair of glasses from this visionary?
