Despite Israel’s recent success in foiling the Palestinian attempt to have it booted from FIFA, Foreign Ministry officials hastened to warn on Tuesday that the soccer brouhaha was just the beginning and that Jerusalem will have a difficult time fending off “the diplomatic tsunami.”

These warnings appear to be well-founded in light of the decision by a number of western European countries, chief among them France and the United Kingdom, to decline to exhibit their wares at the seventh annual Israel Defense expo, which opens in Tel Aviv on Tuesday morning. The exhibition is considered one of the more prestigious events that attracts visitors eager for a glimpse at the latest in police and paramilitary equipment to hit the market.
