The disastrous (for Israel) result that we are now looking at is shared blame between the Leftist dominated Israel government and the U.S. NeoCon ambitions for the Middle East.

While the U.S. does quietly continue to supply Israel militarily, the public pronouncements made by SECSTATE have been humiliating and damaging to Israel's image, and have angered Israelis against the U.S. Smiling sedateness does not make a poison pill any more palatable.

The best way to view this realistically is to not be too defensive about the U.S. position, which does not mean we are out to bash Bush. How far do we go in playing the game of diplomacy before we compromise our own principles (and interests), especially in the WOT ... and, how much territory and symbolic sovereignty does Israel give up before she ceases to exist?

Sorry, but whatever has gone on behind the scenes, we have been a party to the public humiliation of Israel.

Ohlmert was begging for a ceasefire. He was getting his ass kicked, and will likely be run out of town by the end of the month.

Israel has humiliated itself with its indecisiveness.
