It's September All Right
Remember last spring when Ehud Barak warned that Israel faced of a "diplomatic tsunami" come September? Well, it's September and Israel better start searching for high ground. Relations with Turkey are a mess. Earlier today, Egyptians stormed the wall outside of the Israeli embassy. And the Palestinians are set to present their resolution to the UN when it reconvenes on September 20. How utterly tragic that Israeli leadership has shown itself completely incapable of pressing forward with any initiative to avoid what everyone has seen coming for months now. Bibi may go down as the one who lost Turkey. The one who lost Egypt. And if you believe Haaretz's Carlo Strenger, quite possibly the one who lost a Jewish state. But hey, Standard & Poor's gave Israel an A+ credit rating!
