Israeli Defense Minister Predicts The End Of Artificial ME States

Moshe Ya'alon predicts the end of his country:

Israel's Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon is known for his blunt manner, and in an interview with NPR, he says that a future map of the Middle East will look very different that the one that exists today.
"We have to distinguish between countries like Egypt, with their history. Egypt will stay Egypt," Ya'alon, who is on a visit to Washington, tells Morning Edition's Steve Inskeep.

In contrast, Ya'alon says, "Libya was a new creation, a Western creation as a result of World War I. Syria, Iraq, the same — artificial nation-states — and what we see now is a collapse of this Western idea."

Which country in the Middle East is the most artificial? Which one was created as the result of a World War and is solely a "western" idea?

It seems to me that Ya'alon lacks the self awareness to detect the irony in what he said.

You mean the other way round. The state of Israel doesn't have long to go, to judge by the wildly unstable policies they go in for. On the other hand, the Arab states will always be there.

Yep. RT is pushing a story about The New Exodus which is exacerbating "Israel's" demographic problem. 1 M+ (from a total of 8M "Israeli" Jews) have left seeking saner and more civilised pastures.
60% > USA, 25% > EU, 15% > elsewhere.

Bibi doesn't advertise the fact, but Jews who look Arabic (Semitic) are, generally speaking, second class citizens in "Israel" (and among racist Jews worldwide).

The youngish male ex pat Semitic Jew interviewed by RT for the Exodus story was complaining about the lack of job opportunities in "Israel" and the extraordinarily high cost of buying and/or renting residential property in the Promised Land. EU is a popular destination because several EU countries have govt-subsidised rent.

It's pure speculation on my part but, having seen anecdotal and limited first-hand evidence of intra-Jewish racism, and realising that the young Jew in the RT interview looked like a Jihadi, one wonders how much pressure Jews with the wrong-coloured skin are under to do Israel's dirty work by posing as Jihadis outside Israel in return for some form of recognition/more favourable treatment?

Greed and racism will probably undermine the Zionist Dream just as inexorably as so many of "Israel's" other insanely abrasive policies.

Sweden and Europe MUST become multicultural, and Jews will be resented because of their leading role.
