    Of course there is a disconnect between the career "diplomats" at the Foreign Ministry and the Netanyahu administration. The prime interest of the ELECTED Prime Minister is to watch out for the best interests of the people of the State of Israel. As such, Prime Minister Netanyahu duly noted the very true fact that the HamasPA praise of Bin Laden exposes grave danger if HamasPA were to be given sovereignty now. In contrast, the career "diplomats" at the Foreign Ministry who authored this internal report and then gave it to Haaretz to publish, are interested primarily in being refered to as "statesmen" who behave "diplomatically" in the pursuit of "Peace". Facts and reality are of no concern to these career diplomats. (who wouldn't last a day in the service of the foreign office in most other countries).
