Anarchy Surrounds Israel

Reader comment on item: Anarchy Surrounds Israel

Submitted by Balarabe Abba (Nigeria), Jul 19, 2012 at 13:51

Please refer to my comment on your Gaddafi's Fin de Regime dated 25/02/2011 in which I commented that Israel should decipher the development in the Middle East and North Africa.

To my understanding there are three problems in the Middle East and North Africa and all have adverse effect on Israel as a neighbor or as a defendant and have been made clear right from antiquity:-

  1. Social/Economic Problem

"One whose belly is empty is an accuser;

One deprived becomes an opponent,

Don't have him for a neighbor".

  1. Palestinian issue/occupied territories

"If a seizure is ordered and carried out,

Hatred will arise against him who seizes"

  1. Tyranny and rebellion

"A quarreler is a mindless person,

If he is known as an aggressor

The hostile man will have trouble in the neighborhood"

I think there is something more crucial than the Iranian nuke.
