Meridor: Any Arab acceptance of Israel comes from understanding of its strength

Meridor Any Arab accept

Strategic Affairs Minister Dan Meridor said Friday that any acceptance of Israel by Arab states came from an understanding of its strength, not its legitimacy. "The whole outlook that brought Egypt, Jordan, North African countries and Gulf states to accept Israel stemmed from the belief that it cannot be destroyed," Meridor told Kol Hai Radio. "They didn't see the Jewish right, but understood the Jewish power." "However, it they ever think the balance has changed, I don't know how that will affect the peace process, and so we have an interest in making sure this does not happen," he warned.
