It has nothing to do with an Israeli plot and everything to do with the relationship between Israel and the rest of the world - namely, the U.S. The
U.S. understands that Israel is looking out for its best interests first (and Israel has made this quite clear to us) and Israel understands that the
U.S. is not looking to blow them off the face of the Earth.
It doesn't matter what our intel suggests about them or doesn't suggest - almost all interactions between the U.S. and Israel are under the pretense
that Israel has something to gain from it, or they wouldn't bother. Their intel agents are constantly looking at what goes on in other countries and
forming their own opinions - it's how the game is played.
The difference between Israel and a number of other countries is that Israel's diplomats are not just hot air - and are usually associated closely
(if not part of) the Israeli intelligence services. That generally means their feelings won't be too hurt when they find out they have been being
sized up by other countries.
There is also the fact that Israel and the U.S. share a lot of information - 'damage control' for the leaked documents took place as soon as it was
known what was leaked - months before this release and hooplah over it.
