Mosab Yusef: "What if Israel Disappeared?"

Another interesting quote from that book, Son of Hamas:
I asked myself what Palestinians would do if Israel disappeared—if everything not only went back to the way it was before 1948 but if all the Jewish people abandoned the Holy Land and were scattered again. And for the first time, I knew the answer. 
We would still fight. Over nothing. Over a girl without a head scarf. Over who was toughest and most important. Over who would make the rules and who would get the best seat.

Ok, so if we treat Palestine as a country, then Israel will strike whoever helps Palestine and the whole region will descend into war? I just can't see anyone in the region coming to the aid of Israel though. Maybe the USA though...
