    Israelis pride themselves in not learning from their mistakes. They are too arrogant to think that their critics can teach them a lesson. As a result, we have a history of over reaction from Israel attracting attention from people who otherwise would not have noticed. Israel's actions and policies cannot bear scrutiny from any unbiased source, so the last thing Israel should be doing is inviting the attention of "third parties". Over the years the result has been that Israel's stock in the world is at an all time low and dropping.
