On the diplomatic front, the government needs to change the focus of its public diplomacy.
The government currently accepts the false claim that the Palestinian terrorist onslaught is being carried out by lone wolves. Its public diplomacy is limited as a consequence to condemning official Palestinian Authority incitement.

So too the government should attack the radical Left in Israel and in the West that supports a society that seeks to annihilate Israel, applauds barbarism and kills anyone who wishes to live at peace with Israel. ...
