  •  I think Israel has a different opinion clearly. (0+ / 0-)

    It's kind of a core belief that Israel can't ever really depend on anyone, even the USA. In that sense, international isolation is a secondary consideration. It's not desirable, of course, but Israel believes that relying on the forebearance of others or the good wishes of others has been proven to lead to disaster for the Jewish people. I am not a Jew, so I may be projecting. I just think that that's what I would think if I were. So I could be wildly wrong.

    For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus

    •  Some may have that opinion (0+ / 0-)

      and they might be right.  "Going it alone" might be a course of action.

      But then what do we (the US) do if Israel goes the rogue state route?   If they become a North Korea?
