Does Israel have a foreign policy?

by Maskil on August 27, 2007

It’s sometimes difficult to believe that Israel has a consistent, rational foreign policy, but that’s not what this piece is about. I just think that one of the cornerstones of Israeli foreign policy should be to create and reinforce a network of relationships with all non-Arab and/or non-Muslim ethnic groups in the region. These relationships and alliances could be either overt or covert (depending on circumstances), and should include both state and non-state actors, e.g. both the Armenians (who have a state) and the Kurds (who currently don’t). Some of these relationships have existed in the past, and have generally ended in ways that do not reflect credit on the Jewish state. Let’s give it another go.
