    Yvette Lieber has shown again that his foreign policies are near-sighted and not pro-active. When the Egyptians have overthrown the pro-American Mubarak’s repressive regime, Israeli foreign affairs ministry should have redefined its policies toward Egypt. Obviously Egyptians didn’t and will not support a “peace” treaty imposed on Egypt by Uncle Sam. So this treaty with the former Mubarak’s regime should be annulled this summer, it’s politically dead! Israeli military commanders under directions of the foreign ministry could be more care careful in planning their actions on Israeli-Egyptians border (a “stupid” anti-terrorist’s action using helicopters wasn’t precise enough not to create a “collateral” damage – five Egyptian border guards). One good gesture from Israeli government could be – organizing humanitarian aid (food and medicine) to economically depressed Egyptian districts. Same humanitarian aid could be organized on Syrian border. Israeli foreign diplomats should start direct open to media contacts with opposition leaders showing a good will to Egyptians and Syrians not hiding behind Uncle Sam (America has started this mess).
