the iraq disaster is doubly negative for israel. not only has it irreversibly undermined its only benefactor, but it has also further unshackled forces, which are fundamentally inimical to israel. what lessons does israel draw from this mess?....the cowboyish self righteous hubris, which is an american trade mark, is a recipe for disaster. while israel has no choice but to remain closely allied with uncle sam, it has to think differently, and wisely as to the policies it must follow in its neigbourhood... after all it has to live there. as for the american congressmen , and their pronouncements.... ignore them, you know better.
