Israeli political circles are monitoring the build up to Sunday's referendum in South Sudan claiming secession could lead to a spate of similar breakaways in Iraq, Turkey and Algeria.

Israel Today's analysis expects southern Sudan to be a promising country, largely in part due to its wealth of natural resources. It also added that several political and security sources in the South sent positive signals with regards to normalization of relations with Israel, should it become an independent country.

Zvi Barel, Haaretz's former managing editor, added that the citizens of the South are fully aware of national and global developments that 'necessitate' cooperating with the Israeli state.

Israeli daily Maariv added that Palestinians in south Sudan and southerners living in Israel are hoping for secession as well.

Israeli media reports on South Sudanese refugees living in the state said most refugees are convinced secession represents the ideal solution to the problems they face both socially and politically, including those that ultimately lead them to migrate to Israel.

Israel eyes southern Sudan
The creation of a brand new country that is pro Israel right in the annals of Egypt and Sudan (both anti Israel) countries is not less than a miracle per say to the Jewish state of Israel. It is a good thing for Israel to happen, I am sure the Israelis have been working for the independence of south Sudan for years, I am very happy for the Israelis, it keeps the balance of powers between Israel and the seventy two million pathetic Arabs surrounding Israel.

Israel, the Rogue State!
Zionist Israel, having murdered ten unarmed Turkish Activists in International Waters. lost the favor of the Turkish Public pious and secular. Wishful thinking by delusional Zionists about 'similar secessionist movements in Turkey' are either in the fgantasy land or seeking suicide for the shoe box-sized Israel! Turks Secular and Pious alike already find Zionist intereference in neighboring countries nauseating. Any move on the part of microscopic intransigent Israel to instigate Turkish citizens of Kurdish origin against their brethren would spell the beginning of the end of much hated beliggerent Zionist Entity.
