According to him, in the region occur historical changes. “But with all our desire to influence a lot, Israel is far from always able to do this,” the minister said. Speaking about the changes in the Arab countries, one must understand that, on the one hand, Israel is pleased with them, the politician stated.
“I really hope that in 20-30 years we will finally get rid of the often repeated phrase that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. And we can replace it with the phrase that we are one of many democracies in the region. But at the same time It also shows the experience of many eastern countries, this process is long, it requires a very serious transition period. And how long it will last is not clear, ”stated Yuli Edelstein.
At the same time, the Minister of Information and the Diaspora of Israel expressed the hope that, in the end, common sense would triumph, and the region would see some comfort. “But for now, at least in the coming decades, the situation will remain unstable due to internal processes in many states of the Middle East. A lot of time will pass before they settle,” Edelstein summed up.
