Glick on ignorence

I like Caroline Glick as a reporter and a commentator. Here she starts a piece on what's behind the crass ignorence of Israel by those whose job is know it:

"I have been in Israel for two years and have never spoken to someone with views like yours." So exclaimed a senior Western diplomat at the end of a pleasant lunch meeting with me on Wednesday afternoon.

Surprised, I responded, "That's strange. If the results of the last election and recent polling data are any indication of national sentiment, it would seem that many of my views are shared by the majority of Israelis."
