    When i read the title, i thought that Arens was complaining about short-sighted politicians. and he began to realize the problems in Israel's foreign policy. But after i had read the article i got dissappointed once again. Arens is angry with US as it reacted Israel's wrong-doings. For him, even after flotilla, US must fully support it. Well, in flotilla incident, the main problem was not to stop the ships but it was to seize them in International waters and eventhough 9 activists were killed, Israel still refuses an international probe. (for me the problem is bigger than this.) That's why US had to criticize Israel. World capitals are against Israel as it defies international laws in every single opportunity. So problem is that Israel is a cactus to which even close friends may not approach.
