That is of course laudible. But the point has to be made that AS8584 is in
Israel. In an environment when a small ISP in a small country can cause a

propogate this knowledge far and wide.

I don't understand this point.  Would you have been happier if they
were a small ISP in the United States?  How about India?  Finland?
Why does it matter that AS8584 is in Israel?

I believe that the implication was that: 1) they're not directly
connected to any of the major _US_ backbones, and 2) they're on the
other end of a fairly thin hose.

And they can _still_ hose things this badly.

This speaks not well of the architecture involved.
