ALL countries put their own interests first if they are not bothered about international laws and if they know they can break them and get away with it if its in their interests they will break them. Israel is not unique in that attitude. Israeli governments are not elected to make sure Israel is a law abiding member of the international community they are there to put Israel first the rest of the world second. Sorry tony but thats how the REAL world works ALL countries put their own interests first and laws second.
