"..develop and sustain personal connections with the entire elite in business, politics, arts and culture, science and academia." Hasn't that been the long standing Israeli strategy? Personally I find it chilling. Cunningly influencing the world to overlook behaviour that cannot ever knowingly be accepted. Here's another option. Stop settlement building and withdraw to a defined Israeli state. Allow Palestinians to live with dignity and afford them these people basic human rights. Influence through the "entire elite in business, politics, arts and culture, science and academia" may work for a while (it has done to this point), but in the long run it cannot be sustained. It will be greatly resented, as people are beginning to wake up to already. I can only imagine the reaction if the shoe was on the other foot and it was proposed to infiltrate all layers of Israeli culture. It may be treason.
