Israel Quietly Shutting Embassies in Volatile Regions
Politics Daily – As Days of Rage continue across the Middle East, and thoughts are far from the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process, the Israeli Foreign Ministry took the unusual step earlier this week of quietly shutting down four embassies and putting others on high alert. That’s because as attention has turned to protests in Bahrain, Yemen, Algeria, and Iran, sabers are rattling between Lebanon and Israel. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned that his nation could once again enter Lebanon and Hezbollah once again promised to avenge its martyrs.
That would be one martyr, in particular. At least this week.
