When Nation impose a "my way or the highway" type of diplomacy on others... sometime People prefer the highway. As much as some would like it to, it happen that sometime, most of the world don't agree with your nation decision. Israel would be well advise to remember that we do not own Israel, it is in my humble opinion quite the contrary. The rest of planet earth does not appreciate when you act with too much arrogance and self-declared virtue, It your right, but it's our to ignore you until your nation respect it's neighbour.
