What Would I Think?

If I were a Jew.  Living in Israel.  What would I think of developments in the Arab world?  Perhaps I was hopeful when press in the United States wrote about the "Arab Spring", quoting politicians who predicted the evolution of peaceful democracy.  Or perhaps I was skeptical, knowing that my Arab neighbors include many whose mission with respect to Israel is total annihilation.  Today I see clearly that my erstwhile American ally pursues a new strategy.  My own country's leaders don't appear to be in the inner circle.  I am expected to be patient as negotiations run their course.  Patience did not serve my ancestors well.  Patience is not a defensible plan.  If I were a Jew, living in Israel, I would be scared.
