Israeli Defense Minister: Idea of Achieving Middle East Peace Is an ‘Illusion’

The idea of achieving peace in the Middle East is an “illusion,” Israel’s defense minister said on Friday during a visit to the US.

“I think it’s really something non-realistic,” Avigdor Lieberman said in remarks at a Washington Institute for Near East Policy event. “The biggest problem for the Middle East is not Israel, but it’s Arab society.”

“The main problem…of Arab society, is that the middle class doesn’t exist,” Lieberman theorized.

Israel, Lieberman noted, might be facing more security threats on its borders than any other country in the world.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
