Israel and the dictators (besides Mubarak)

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/opinion/article/israel_and_the_dictators_besides_mubarak_20110209

It’s not that we’re against democracy, goes the Israeli line on Egypt, it’s that we’re afraid of the Islamists and radical Arab nationalists taking over. We’re afraid to lose the peace. We’re right on Egypt’s border – the front line. We love democracy, we want democracy for everyone, certainly for our Arab neighbors, and we hate dictatorship, of course – we’re just very worried about our security, and we have a right to be.
