Israel has America to shield them from their politicians bad decisions. In fact, America sees to it that they even shield Israel from UN criticism. The problem becomes one in which Israelis do not know of the connection between cause and effect. They think they can do any outrageous thing and there will never be any repurcussions. Now we have Netanyahu talking about taking responsibility. What does that even mean? If he starts world war three and destroys half of Israel and turns the world economy upside down that he will resign? Who would even care? It is impossible to take responsibility for such masive miscalculations.
