Top defense official: Israel faces isolation ‘no less severe than war’ – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

The chief of Israel’s diplomatic-security bureau warned this week that Israel faced an isolation “no less severe than war” should the United Nations recognize Palestine as an independent state this September.In remarks carried by Channel 10, General res. Amos Gilad said behind doors that the Palestinian Authority leadership was organizing an “international assault against Israel”.

“If you don’t enter negotiations, you gain stability, but also international isolation,” said Gilad. “The isolation will legitimize the clashes that could erupt from a coincidental event or incident that with Twitter and Facebook could spark an entire fire.”
