Erratic Behavior: Sign of Things to Come with the Netanyahu Government?


One day Lieberman "cannot see Syria as a real partner for any kind of settlement" (see previous post), and the next he is "willing to negotiate," albeit "without preconditions" (Ha'aretz). This is diplomatic silliness. It looks we are going to see a lot of instant reversals with this new government. If you play hard to get on Saturday, you can't suddenly drop your skirt (or pants) on Sunday. The Prime Minister's Office has been strangely silent. Maybe they are hoping that Lieberman will render himself irrelevant.

If you play hard to get on Saturday, you could drop your skirt/pants on Sunday, but it will seriously undermine Saturday's actions. Better not to play hard to get in the first place if you cannot hold your skirt/pants on for longer than 24 hrs. Why is Israel doing this?
