    "I have seen that some ambassadors identify themselves with the other side to such an extent that they are all the time trying to justify and explain [the position of the other side]," - Avigdor Lieberman, as per Haaretz What exactly does Mr. Lieberman think the purpose of a foreign service is? Is it not to best represent the interests of their nation to the world? "There will be a response to everything. This is the policy I want the ambassadors [to implement]. The era of groveling is over. We must be on good terms and respect the host nations, but we will not tolerate insults and challenges." - Avigdor "meshuggina" Lieberman The man is clearly out of touch with reality. He has no clue as to what a foreign ministry or foreign service diplomats exist for. "Lieberman addressed the forum of ambassadors for about 20 minutes, but no opportunity to ask questions or comment was given to the diplomats." - Haaretz Good Idea. best not to allow reporters to question a lunatic.
