Vicious Cycle

Israel has an entirely cavalier attitude towards its international friends. It doesn't trust them; it doesn't respect them.  It pissed off the USA by proceeding with contested settlements under Joe Biden's nose, it pissed off the UK by equipping an assassination team with stolen British passports- and now it has pissed off Turkey- its one ally in the Middle East- by shooting up its aid convoy.

There are reasons for the paranoia- we all know what they are- but they don't excuse it or make it anything but a stupid and self-destructive thing.
The more paranoid you act the more people hate you the more paranoid you become.
