    "Turning Israel into a pariah state is central to its adversaries' efforts. " - Gidi Grinstein And they have the very best of all possible allies. Israel's right, i.e. Likud, Yisrael Beiteinu, Kadima and the Settlers, continue to act in ways guaranteed to turn Israel into a pariah. The current foreign policy is to alienate as many nations as possible. The current big question is whether to attack Gaza or Lebanon first. The systematic expansion of Settlements - which NO other nation recognizes as legitimate or legal continues. Israel maintains a failed blockade of Gaza which makes it look sadistic. There is an attitude that if the world doesn't like what Israel does, then Israel should do more of it just because. Israel's enemies don't have to lift a finger to delegitimize Israel. Israel is doing it for them. The current government wants all Israelis to view the entire world is their enemy. And the main method being used to achieve this is to make the world Israel's enemy.
