WHERE IS THE COOPERATION TO SAVE THE BORDERS.?

Let me comment on your four points. It seems so outdated to talk today about making fences with stone and wire when we live in the 21st Century. Yet you may tell me that the ones erected so far have been of good use. Curious that only ISRAEL is building fences,not the others. So it is the one who fears that builds.

How long will Israel live in this state of fear ? I am sure that with today's technology, and Israel is good at it, there has to be some kind of electronic invisible fence that will fry whoever crosses it. Imagine the distance from Eilat to Jerusalem, the time and the cost. I am sure we can do better. How funny, that not only Israel has to take care of protecting itself, but now we are adding the protection of Jordan to the equation.how fair is that? And soon the border with Sirya and Lebanon. And as for two states,forget it, who wants to have an enemy state wishing your destruction living side by side? Show me some trust before we talk further. As for cooperation,where will it come from. I may see it coming from Egypt and Jordan, but these countries have their internal problems to deal with.

Yes I go along to enable the Kurds to have their own state. They have deserved it for so long and no one cared. Well today Israel cares. As for Iran, it will always remain the big unknown. And it seems that the world has yet to understand their aspirations. Sure,if you put yourself in their shoes, they are right to do what they want. But remember when did you see them care for others? Did you ever see them send a team of doctors to help an area hit by earthquake or tsunami ? Israel however is a pro at that.

I am in the process of writing an open letter to the Arab World and will soon send you a copy

Thanks Daniel for your feedback
