No longer will I ridicule you and your views, because you have struck terror into my heart. I did not know that you were a seer, with such insight. Hold on, no thats not right....... Muppet, I said, and Muppet I stand by. Israel will not be crushed, the west will not permit it. Try to keep in mind that the only real bargaining tool the Arabs have is their level of control over oil production, and Western governments would rather, just for now, negotiate and buy such oil.

however, do not fall into the trap in believeing that if push comes to shove, major powers like the US, and Europe will not just decide to "protect" the worlds oil supplies. One thing I do agree with you on though, the change WILL come in the next five years, but my fear is that the West will be FORCED into another Crusade to control the rise of Islamic fundamentalism. If that happens, I fear that TRUE Muslims will suffer with the fundamentalists, and no-one really wants that. Do you?
