foreign minister ministry of foreign affairs and the bad news for him was who. desires peace needs to fool. and i thought that was very telling. of the psyche that. exists behind his political. and i thought i could not. minister with this kind of statement is it a statement supported by the majority of israelis i think we israelis yes we. we grew up on. you that. we need to be on alert. to any more most israelis live a life that is quite bad and you can cut it out of the environment and the us and europe western europe and you will find the israelis
11:31 am
quite. easy integrating into society into requirements in place and so on so it's not. the regiment it's society of my childhood. it's at any given point in time but it is true that israelis are not naive and they believe that we can survive here in the middle east. only if we ready to fight when you resigned. the staff of the foreign ministry explaining the resignation what was the reaction and what is the general mood like among israeli public servants concerning the policies that will have to differ and i have no illusions some of us. frustrated by my letter. because it is outside of. it you just drop out because you don't. like the message the messenger has no view over the message that
11:32 am
it is because of conduct and it's quite legitimate to think in that way how many messengers agree with the message and how many don't in the foreign ministry in my view the large majority don't care they are professionals and whatever message comes for them to deliver they will do. there is. a solid minority ministry that is politically motivated to promote. israel. and in it's. a rather. hawkish. position government. is. pursuing. i think we do also have the lefties left overs from the past. but i think the minority don't last overseas posting was as ambassador
11:33 am
to south africa what it's all experience in south africa teaching as far as the situation in israel is concerned. i think that israel is. in a danger zone to slide by default. into. manifestations of apartheid if we don't take care. and i'm afraid we don't take care and there's growing discontent in the united states as far as israeli policies on iran and palestine how deep is the west between the united states and israel or is it merely a lovers' quarrel i'm surprised to realize how deep the american care for israel is when it comes to the conversation the political conversation in the us. i also can see. the aftermath of the war in iraq and enough guns.
11:34 am
and the american fatigue of the middle east. could work badly for the image. in the us and the political discourse in the us and in the context of american interests god forbid that the us will be more reluctant to reach out for israel because our predicament. is the result of a policy pursued by this government in a way that i think is tragically wrong. that we lean to the american congress a single source of strength in our diplomatic fabric and that is. very dangerous following on from what to saying israel has become increasingly
11:35 am
isolated on the international stage what should this country steps be to bring in the self isolation in my view this government. very explicitly. made a statement to the effect that. stepped out. intentionally . of the land for peace and of occupation the key to. a settlement in the middle east. and into a new paradigm. that stipulates ownership of. exclusive ownership of israel. over the entirety of the land of israel which comprises in the eyes of palestinians palestine. is a dead end i think it is immoral morally and practice. really it's not sustainable
11:36 am
and that is the reason why i left government i thought i could not that kind of off message banking movie united nations chief has called on israel to end its occupation of palestine mourning that it won't leave it to another israeli palestinian conflict but is the israeli government is willing to listen. on the west bank and the gaza strip. it likes. and. things are changing fast on the ground in favor of entrenching israeli presence in palestinian areas i don't think really jerusalem pays much attention too much attention to what the secretary general of the u.n. you say who can involve a lie on in the region considering that in the aftermath of the arab spring the middle east has become more radicalized i don't think israel is looking for i think
11:37 am
israel is looking for. partners. of convenience. one is jordan who survive ability in the way in the form we know it through the kingdom. so we entertain. a lot of common interests. consumed by its own revolution and as long as it doesn't pose a threat to us i think israel is taking a very careful distance and turkey. a catastrophic foreign policy towards one of the emerging powers in the mediterranean as far as syria goes what is the best outcome for israel and why does the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu want everything changed in syria if that would mean could mean another islamic state on the border. i think israel came in
11:38 am
a have an impact on the outcome of any regime change that is underway anyway. so to ignore the fact that there is a regime change in the making in syria would be. unacceptable but at the same time we need to be very careful not to expedite it is there any way that you could support and i would pick. something that qatar has called for and what would such an invasion mean for the region i can hardly see the arab world in. one force that is prepared to walk into syria physically and intervene there i don't see it happening how much of a threat to regional security it is very obvious that iran is pursuing a position as a regional power. to serve interests that go beyond the immediate borders of
11:39 am
iran it is primarily defensive primarily its response to. iran to protect itself that is one level the other domestic political discourse in israel the right wing always. profited from. nervous public mood on new defense issues and i think a lot about what a lot of what is said about the wrong actually serves political ends and i'm. very angry about that i think it should be stopped. it once do you think you could attack israel i don't think so could israel attack iran i don't know but common sense. is critically dependent on international legitimacy. respond response to
