All views should be welcomed. Even so, I’m not sure this viewpoint is really missed.
Now, to you or me, this reads like Israel adapting to reality and trying to maintain its influence over the evolving geopolitical arrangements in the Middle East. To neoconservatives, however, this is Israel in retreat. They\’ve given up on fighting the interim deal! Their threat to launch a military strike against Iran has been exposed as empty rhetoric!! Why should Iran ever take Netanyahu seriously again?
The key things to realize about the neoconservative worldview is that:
1) Reputation and the image of strength are everything;
2) Countries bandwagon to the strong states and eschew the weak states.
3) Even the slightest concession in the present weakens one\’s reputation and strength for the future; so
4) Any concession in a present negotiation ineluctably leads to unconditional surrender in the future.
