About 85 million Egyptians live under a dictator today so that Israel can continue earning days. Instead, maybe the 7.5 million Israelis should live under a dictator who accepts Palestinian refugees and doesn't demand an ethnic majority state. Then 85 million Egyptians can peacefully have a democracy. Fortunately South Africa provides a model where a group can give up an ethnic majority state without a dictator but the callousness, the racism of the idea that Egypt under a dictator is a good thing is breathtaking. Even more so when it comes from someone named Barack Hussein Obama, who is the president of the United States.
But here, mainly so it will be easier to find this quote later, again is Mr. Soffer speaking on Egypt:
Every morning, when I read the papers and see that Jordanian King Abdullah II is healthy and Mubarak is still alive, I know we've earned another day. I live with the sense that one day we will wake up to the news of a coup in Jordan and Egypt. And woe is the day when insane Islam takes over those two countries. In other words, in spite of everything he does, Mubarak is still among our friends. He's also got problems.The people of Egypt are now demonstrating that they are no longer willing to be held under tyranny for the comfort of a small number of people like Arnon Soffer.
