    It is not the past lack of relevant experience that has left the Israeli Diplomat's mind underdeveloped. The brilliance of the IDF leaders in past campaigns like when Ariel Sharon turned potential defeat into victory when he crossed behind the Egyptian lines to encircle the Egyptian 3rd Army shows that Israelis are capable of brilliance even in areas where they did not gain such experience in the Diaspora. The problem is the ''mentality'' which afflicts Israeli politicians and Business leaders alike. Their belief that anyone who is not 'macho' is a ''Freier'' prevents Israeli politicians from seeing beyond their own 'I know it all' mentality! Their failure to use their Jewish mind is self inflicted and is a desease which deludes them in all walks of life. They kid nobody when they act macho. Just because most people just don't challenge them they think they are getting away with it! They should get back to the Jewish values of generosity and humanitarianism towards the Israeli Arabs, Palestinians and their dealings with other International Leaders etc. This would open their eyes to what they could achieve even in the area of Diplomacy!!
