For the last 8 years the government of the United States had only one way of dealing with the world. My way or the Highway. More than that, it had the belief that if you shat upon everyone, they would kiss up to you. This theory of international relations was an astounding flop. Now Israel is enjoying it's third government with the same approach and the same beliefs. It is working no better than it did for Uncle Sam. What greater moments of progress in it's international relations had Israel than the advent of peace with Egypt and Jordan? Israeli kids don't even have to sneak into Petra anymore (not as much fun, but . . . ). So what do the people of Israel think they will get for shitting upon the world? I really think it might be wise to consider just how far out of touch with reality the current government is.
