    If Israel continues its slide toward phariah status in the world, and if it continues to see the benefits of peace only through the lens of short term calculation, the long term viability of Israel is in greater doubt. Eventually, the Arab states are likely to get their act together and strengthen their ability to act collectively, improve their military capability and make vastly better strategic use of their economic power, all of which may accrue to the detriment of Israel. Alternatively, if Israel uses its extraordinary abilities to do something that creates good will in the Arab world, it seems possible that Israel coud dramatically increase its economic opportunities and reduce its political risks. Also, Israel will be a better place, most of all for Israelis, if the country were finally to actually become a beacon of hope rather than a self-serving nation that attacks its neighbors (via its alleged pre-emptive "defensive" tactics) than do all the other countries in the Middle East combined.
