Want to stop losing friends in the United Nations? Stop insulting our intelligence

William Saletan at Slate writes playfully about how Israel managed only negligible United Nations support when the Palestinians brought their bid for nonmember observer state last week. Saletan explains, among other things, how the Israeli establishment's complaint that Palestinians are taking unilateral moves makes very little sense. Saletan reminds the Israeli government that if they want to be taken seriously, they need to stop insulting the intelligence of the world community.
