This a follow-up to WikiLeaks And Israel.
Far be it from me to believe ANYTHING which comes out of Defense Minister Baraq's mouth....
Nonetheless, perhaps this is an example of what is meant by HaShem speaking through "idiots and imbeciles."
Baraq could be right. The embarrassment on the U. S. is so great that it really appears to be rattling everyone.
Assange Arrested In Britain; Vows to Fight Extradition
David Lev, IsraelNN.com, 30 Kislev 5771/December 7, 2010
One of the most wanted men on two continents, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, was arrested Tuesday afternoon by British police, at the request of Swedish authorities, who issued an international arrest warrant for him. Meanwhile, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday that the United States' preoccupation with Wikileaks has led to a reduction in U.S. efforts to pressure Israel into agreeing to another building freeze in Judea and Samaria.
If this is all it takes to embarrass the U. S., just think of what could be accomplished.
On second, this makes me wonder all the more, what kind of information Jonathan Pollard has been holding secret to embarrass the U. S. No wonder why the powers that be in the U. S. (and in Israel?) do not want him to be released.
Food for thought.
