  •  oh really? (0+ / 0-)
    Israel also has a lot more countries gunning for her on any given day that Egypt does.
    Care to make a little list?

    All I can think of are Hamas and Hizbullah, which aren't even countries.  Oh, and the occasional attempt at an assassination in some third country that might be perpetrated by Iran -- but against which American military hardware is kind of useless.

    •  Gunning is too strong of a word then. (0+ / 0-)

      Israel is still formally in a state of war with Lebanon and Syria.

      Egypt remains at peace because it is being bribed by the US.

      Iran is a genuine threat from afar based on official rhetoric, policy, and weapons capability.

      Out of four bordering states only one has anything close to "warm" relations with Israel.

      Does Israel face an existential threat right now? No
      Could it in the future from some combination of these countries? Yes, especially if Iran gets a nuke.

      If you believe that ALL criticism of Israel is antisemitic, you're an idiot.
      If you believe that NONE of the criticism of Israel is antisemitic, you're a fool.
      If you call EVERYONE who criticizes Israel antisemitic, you're just an a$$hole
