An Israeli friend & colleague of mine says: ” Israel doesn’t have the luxury of closing embassies just because we are afraid, or even if there are threats.
Dutch Yemen Embassy Closed out of Fear
The Dutch Embassy in Yemen will be closed in the coming days due to security fears. The American Embassy there will also be closed because it has been threatened. The closure of the Dutch Embassy which employs 6 Dutchmen and 15 local workers has not received such threats. Yet the Dutch government thinks that if several other Western embassies are closed, it may become a target.
