Israel's Ya'alon advocates use of Sunni proxies to fight ISIS and Iran | Dec 8, 2015 |

Not the United States but Israel clearly sees the difference between the line Turkey/Qatar of the Muslim Brotherhood (support of Hamas) and the Gulf States as the Sunni alliance to fight western proxy wars in the greater Middle East.

Of course we all recall just 13 years ago, Israel's PM Ariel Sharon urged president George Bush to fight a proxy war in Iraq for Israel's interest. Bush/Cheney complied and got nothing in return from Sharon/Olmert to support a Palestinian State by 2006.

PM Sharon was incapacitated by brain trauma and faulty medical treatment. The removal of settlements from  Gaza was the first step to also end the occupation of the West Bank except for the large settlements along the Green Line.

If the Jewish State of Israel had accepted the extended hand of peace from its Arab neighbours in 2002, 10/7 terror strike and break-down of security never would have happened.
