Britain Expels 'Mossad Official'

I have read a lot of commentators around the internet state that Israel is acting in a very “arrogant” manner, thinking they can act with impunity.

I think that is a very dangerous misread of the situation. Israel actually feels quite the opposite. They feel isolated and alone, and have taken to drawing their own red lines and taking care of their own security.

Bibi himself pointed out in his speech that Israel has learned the lessons of Jewish history, that we can rely on nobody but ourselves for our own protection, and I think he meant it.

If the world wants to reign in what they view as an erratic Israel, they need to step up big time on isolating and confronting the threats to Israels security rather than continue to convince Israelis they have to take all matters into their own hands.
