Covenant With Many

Survey: Arabs consider Israel biggest threat to Mideast peace - UPI.com
UPI reports: "A vast majority of people in 12 Arab-majority countries regard Israel as the biggest threat to achieving Middle East peace -- on par with the Islamic State as a source of perceived regional instability, according to a survey released Tuesday by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies. [...] Of those surveyed by the Arab Center, 86 percent 'disapprove of their countries' recognition of Israel,' with about half saying recognition of Israel was tied to 'the establishment of a Palestinian state.'"

Comment: The enmity can't be unlearned if it's embedded into the education systems and into new generations that are taught to hate Israel.  A tiny little country about the size of New Jersey isn't going to take over the entire region, but that doesn't keep Israel's neighbors from wanting to totally destroy it.
