I have been thinking that the entire arms embargo story was something of a set-up. The British foreign office leak a story to the effect that the British government are considering imposing an arms embargo on Israel. (In fact, no real decision was ever made to that effect.) Mitznah is then invited to Britain, and allowed to ask that the embargo be lifted. As a "special favour" to Mitznah, Blair states that will look into it. Mitznah returns from England with a diplomatic success, and proves that he can deal with the British better than Sharon can, by solving a crisis invented to give him such a success. This is supposed to detract from the fact that he has no foreign policy experience.
