Own goal after own goal from Lieberman and Ayalon, with huge damage to even close friends, at a time when diplomacy would seem to be critical. Its astonishing that they retain their jobs, even in a dodgy coalition where they apparently have some sway. At some stage there will be a tipping point in the US where even there Israel will be seen as the main cause of the ME problem. Once you reach that point- and to me it seems close- it will take a lot of turning back, and "crisis" would not do justice to the gravity of Israel's position.
