It is unusual for me to agree with Barak, but this time he is absolutely correct! It has long been time for some discipline and self-restraint to appear amongst Israeli public figures! Ego and personal agenda's must be put aside when the national interest is at stake. Israeli needs and deserves an excellent diplomatic service and amateur comments by ignorant and inexperienced individuals do create an image on the international stage that harms Israel.
