Israel would rather have autocratic friends than democratic enemies

Edmund Sanders' piece in the LA Times published today exposes Israel's hypocrisy, or as Sanders wrote:
Simply put, Israel would rather have autocratic friends than democratic enemies.
Israel which likes to call itself the "only democracy" in the region is afraid of the current wave of pro-democracy protests in the Arab World, especially in Egypt. It's no secret that Israel is nervous of Egyptians' quest for freedom because an outcome of democratic elections in Egypt may produce a government that would stand up to Israel's oppressive policies towards Palestinians and its illegal occupation of Palestine.
