Apparently, Ehud Barak's a reader

Following my post on Friday commenting about Israel's crises with Turkey, Egypt and the Palestinians, Barak called for a special cabinet meeting to address Israel's crises with Turkey, Egypt and the Palestinians:
"There is a wide picture forming around us that includes what happened with Turkey, what is happening with Egypt, and what is happening with the Palestinians," Barak told ministers. "These are events that are not in our control, but we can certainly affect the way we face them."
Friday's post wasn't all that insightful. Anyone who is paying attention understands that Israel is now facing the diplomatic tsunami Barak talked about last spring, only maybe worse than he envisioned it. What would take some insight is to be able explain Israel's paralysis in the face of it.
