If the Middle East was more democratic then there would be no conflict as "history has proven that in general democracies don't fight each other or send terrorist proxies," Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said as he addressed the Community of Democracies Parliamentary Forum Meeting in Washington D.C, according to a statement released Thursday.

"Our conflict is not over territory or resources but over basic ideology, Israel is not accepted in the region because it is democratic," Ayalon said. "I am embarrassed to be the only speaker from a democracy in our region," the deputy foreign minister added.
