I am big follower of your articles. Nonetheless and frankly I disagree with all what you write though I 'm trying to figure out your logic of thanking presuming that Israel's security is jeopardize by its barbaric neighbors, ironically.

If you flop the picture a little bit; yes Israel is living in threat condition and it is reality; but Israel laid herself in such situation since it perceived itself as Western model state without considering herself as an oriental society that has its peculiarities and sharing commonalities with her peers Middle Eastern societies. If Israel is serious to peace with its neighbors, the official discourse shall emphasize Israel is belong to region and they lived along with Arab and Muslims before European identities formed. But unfortunately, Israel's message to the world as unarmed man got in aim of monsters. Ironically, Arabs share with Israeli with same view but in opposite way that Israelis are European wastes.

This gets as back into first square again, Israel's existence is not issue in this region as much as If Israel's Jews belong to the region because the latter will solve Israel controversial issue which right to exist.

Yours
