    A key principle of real friends is a trust that binds the two. Friendship is further strengthened by the common experience they share. To date, despite the distance, Israel and Australia ironically shared many common experiences. Whomever in the establishment in Israel that made the decision to use their friend's passport fails to grasp this trust principle. I would be worried with the quality of their decision making and leadership, if this is how they regard a trusted friendship. It is an example of neither leadership nor wisdom. Israel is known for its wisdom and leadership throughout its existence. It needs it now - not just in this case, but in other areas where it is forgetting core principles , sadly.
