I agree with you Gideon. If Israel continues to "lose its connection to reality" this is not helpful. And it wil certainly "ultimately find itself LEFT ENTIRELY TO ITS FATE". Ambassador Susan Rice told an untruth - and she was illogical [it was settlement building that STOPPED the peace-talks in the beginning.] SHAME - SHAME - SHAME! an opportunity wrecked. Unless Israel is made to pay SOMETHING - anything - it will never need to stop the occupation[which will go on indefinitely.] i am [figuratively] tearing my hair out! If wearing sack-cloth and ashes would help, I would do it! Talk about frustration.
