Sitting in London, as I do, it seems international opinion and diplomatic pressure have a significant influence on some important decisions of the Government of Israel. It never ceases to amaze me how terrible the Government of Israel is at getting its own message out. I wonder if it is a deliberate policy as it's hared to understand any other way.
