Israel to Accelerate Self-Dismemberment....

In response to Palestine's successful bid to gain membership in UNESCO, Israel has approved a wave of new settlement construction, apparently on the theory that hacking off one's own nose is worth it to spite someone else's face. Seriously, one gets the sense that radical Palestinians can just play Israel like a flute at this point. Do something Israel doesn't like, and watch as they furiously self-destruct.

Agreed, makes you wonder why politicians in Israel can't see the obvious?

Maybe they are too close to events to see the longer term damage that it would do?

Or they are playing up to their local constituency?

Talk about short sighted.
