Judging from posts here, Lieberman retains a number of supporters- am not sure why. Regardless of his politics, his objectives seem strange indeed. It's not obvious why deliberatly alienating even your few friends could be a good idea. At a time when Israel is almost universally perceived as a brutal landgrabbing occupier of its Palestinian neighbours, it would seem best to address that perception (or reality). Upsetting friends with stupid tactics and with pretending offense at any criticism (without addressing the criticism)is unlikely to make much progress. Best to explain why you are not brutal landgrabbing occupiers(if you are not). Or if you are in fact that, and wish to remain so, then it is a tough job, but will need careful managing indeed- and Lieberman's approach is unlikely to achieve a positive outcome.
