    Read Washington Post, The Economist, Der Spiegel or what have you. People around the globe are just stunned by the incompetence of the Israeli government. How can they manage to get in a row with Sweden and the EU over a silly, minor article, published in a stupid tabloid? An old jewish friend, who fled from Austria to Sweden in 1938, said: I no longer recognize Israel. They have gone crazy The reason is of course the radicalization of the israeli society, caused by the large immigration from the old Soviet Union. People who have grown up under religious oppression and with no experience in freedom of press. Unfortunately, the attacks are more or less irrelevant for the Nordic countries, but harms Israel deeply. For an outside observer, the idiotic comments by Lieberman sounds very similar to Ahmadinejad's ranting. There is a growing belief in the US and EU that Israel is trying to focus on irrelevant issues, in order to avoid the important questions, e.g. Gaza, Settlements etc.
