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.

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.
