Israel's desire to be raped and editor's wet dreams

According to JP (gleeful of course) report, Ha'aretz editor David Landau is definitely in a wrong line of work. For two reasons at least: he cannot help venting his personal frustrations in public and, secondly, with his deep penetrating analysis of subconscious sexual desires of whole states he is missing his real calling - that of a sex therapist.

Ha'aretz editor David Landau told US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at a recent private dinner that Israel "wants to be raped by the US" and needed more vigorous American intervention to resolve Middle East conflicts, according to a report in the New York Jewish Week.
This astute diagnosis is not all, Mr Landau apparently suffers from a streak of voyeurism as well:
Landau reportedly "implored Rice to intervene, asserting that the Israeli government wanted 'to be raped' and that it would be like a 'wet dream' for him to see this happen."
Mr Landau himself denies the voyeurism charge:
"I told [Rice] that it had always been my wet dream to address the secretary of state" on this critical issue, Landau told the Jewish Week.
It seems that diplomatic skills acquired by Ms Rice served her well through that encounter with a sexually charged Mr Landau.
Rice was "fantastic" and "completely unfazed" by his comments, he said, and remained "urbane and diplomatic."
Probably helped him out with a napkin after the fulfillment of that dream too...
