It would be wise for the new governments in Egypt and Tunisia to pursue a democratic model in the formation of new assemblie(s) that will represent the desires of self rule by the citizens of these countries. Their should be transparency in the government institutiions when they make reforms and pass new legislation, and while no one from around the world monitoring these events is anticipating perfection, we are expecting the people to be the foundation of the government not a new round of despots or dictators. There is a real chance here for these new regimes to respect Israel's right to coexist in the Middle East with the rest of the Nations who are Islamic states.
Were these states to realize that Israel has much to offer in the form of technical advice, consultation on agricultural techniques, water distribution, healthcare, livestock production, etc., maybe they would come to realize that they have always had a good neighbor in Israel, and they will surely see their neighbors in a " favorable light."
