Much of what WikiLeaks has been leaking from classified US diplomatic material is of little import, despite the attendant hype and sensation- mongering. Yet, here and there, enveloped in the sheer quantity of minutiae, are indicators that should instill a great deal of worry in all Israelis. The danger is that not enough people pay attention to the truly noteworthy leaks amid the deluge of material.

In the last few days, for instance, there was a great deal of public discourse surrounding the bigoted, derogatory and furiously denied comments about party rivals attributed to Labor MK Isaac Herzog.
