Israel's Interest in Engaging the World

By Bradley Burston

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2011

The author states that given the United Nation's extreme bias against Israel, it is only natural for Israelis to want to give up on the U.N., to treat the world body with scorn and suspicion, its decisions regarding the Palestinians seen as little more than missiles aimed at Israel's very existence. However, this is not necessarily in Israel's best interest. In the long run, it is a position that could worsen Israel's isolation, and in the process demoralize and further polarize the Israeli public.
