I will return to the issue of balancing values and interests. Implications A discussion on the concrete implications of a downgrade will loom large at the ANC conference. Yet much of the response to the recommendation has been scaremongering based on speculation about how Israel and its supporters might respond rather than what the recommendation says.
There are three broad areas of possible implications: It has been suggested that this will constrain the possibility of a South African role in the Palestinian-Israeli peace process — a problematic argument for two reasons.
First, there is no peace process to speak of and, second, South Africa has had no previous role whatsoever — not for lack of trying — and will have no role in the future.
Some within the ANC are also concerned that Israel may force the closure of the South African mission in Ramallah, which could be negative for its engagement with the Palestinians. This fear is unwarranted. A look at other experiences, particularly Venezuela and Bolivia, is instructive. After the Israeli onslaught on Gaza, Venezuela expelled Israeli diplomats; Israel reciprocated. Bolivia also severed ties with Israel in Januaryand President Evo Morales continues to use harsh rhetoric against Israel.
Whether there are any trade implications from a downgrade will depend on how Israel responds. Even if Israel places obstacles to trade between the two countries, the effect will be insignificant.Bolivia breaks diplomatic ties with Israel
As many in the pro-Israel lobby acknowledge, trade volumes are not significant enough to be of great concern to South Africa. The country might struggle initially to redirect its exports to other markets but that is not impossible. And Israeli imports can easily be replaced with substitutes from elsewhere or, as the Western Cape desalination project demonstrates, by locally developed technology.
Israeli technology is not indispensable. InIsraeli officials met with Kurdish political leaders.

Israel—Lebanon relations According to Laura Zittrain Eisenberg, the author of "My Enemy's Enemy", the pre-state Zionist attention to Lebanon consisted primarily of repeated attempts to establish a political alliance between the Jewish community in Palestine and the Maronite Catholic Community in Lebanon. Largely neglected by traditional scholarship on the Arab-Israeli condition, the Zionist-Lebanese relationship from to was surprisingly active and amicable.
Zionist curiosity was naturally piqued by Lebanon, an Arab country with a sizable non-Muslim population enjoying political predominance. During the war of —, some right-wing militias were Israel's allies, and after the assassination of President Bachir GemayelIsrael and Lebanon signed an agreement on 17 May which was a peace treaty in all but name. The Lebanese legislature ratified the treaty by a margin of 80 votes, but in a very weak and unstable domestic position president Amine Gemayel abrogated the peace treaty on 5 March under unrelenting Syrian pressure, after the U.
Marines withdrew and after Israel had begun withdrawing from Lebanon. During the Syrian Occupation of Lebanon —it was highly unlikely that Lebanon would sign a peace treaty with Israel before Syria, as Syria's influence on Lebanese politics was strong; however, the Syrian Occupation withdrew from Lebanon, yet the Iran—Syria—Hezbollah axis remained through the heavy arms presence.
However, Lebanon was under the Syrian Occupation, which took over the treaties and negotiations. In Augustafter the clash between Hezbollah and Israel, Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said that Lebanon would be the "last Arab country to make peace with Israel" because of the large number of civilians that were killed in the Lebanon War.
