In the above-linked video, Middle East expert Dr. Mordechai Kedar says, in a speech before the Knesset, that the best way to deal with Muslims is to tell them Israel does not want peace. He points out that Israel has been a successful democracy for 70 years but that countries like
are all failures because Muslims simply can’t get along with each other.
Yet none of these countries failed as a result of their inability to get along with each other. They were ruined by US invasions, sanctions and occupation, which in large part reflect the Yinon Plan described here.
Libya was the most prosperous country in Africa until the US bombed Ghadaffi and got him killed. After that it was taken over by terrorists. It’s as simple as that. Of course we all know that terrorists don't get along with other Muslims, but the solution to this problem is to radically change the policies of the US and its allies so that ISIS and Al-Qaeda no longer can count on the West's support.
Iraq was also prosperous until the US conquered and occupied it. In fact, prior to the war, it once had free health care for everyone, thanks to oil revenues. It was ruined by sanctions and plundered. Only now is it starting to get back on its feet. We had written about this before here.
Syria was doing well before the US-backed Arab Spring, as described here.
Yemen was not highly prosperous but people managed. In fact Aden was once a prosperous and beautiful beach resort. But now, thanks to a blockade and bombing by US-backed Saudi Arabia, the whole country is groaning under a severe humanitarian crisis of cholera and hunger.
Is it fair to destroy a country and then say it is a failure, as though the country were to blame and not the policies of the US and its allies?
Now note that, in the context of Islam, Dr. Kedar does not mention Saudi Arabia, the sponsor of terror groups like ISIS and Al-Qaeda. It is telling that Dr. Kedar, like the Israeli government, does not call Saudi Arabia a failure, even though it is arguably the most notorious human rights violator in the world, is not a democracy and barely hobbles from one violent coup to the next.
The US, whose entire political class is now complaining about some unproven interference by Russia in its “democracy,” actually has a foreign country writing its internal legislation.
When lobbyists control the political affairs of a nation, can that nation be called a democracy?

Why the US allows the Saudis to control its foreign and military policy
