It took less than a day for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to move from proudly announcing an agreement with the United Nations to resettle some 39,000 African asylum seekers to then first freeze and ultimately cancel it. If he isn’t suffering from his own self-induced policy whiplash, observers such as the American Jewish Committee are — with several organizations first releasing press releases congratulating the prime minister for a job well done, only to condemn his about-face less than 24 hours later.

Whatever your views on the asylum-seekers issue, such dramatic and public indecisiveness is not good for Israel.
