In the midst of the difficulties the IDF is having against Hezbollah ,the PM is quoted as publicly telling west bank settlers that he will still evict them as soon as possible.
IT IS ONE THING TO MAKE A MISTAKE,IT IS ANOTHER TO REFUSE TO SEE YOUR FOLLY. IT IS EVEN A GREATER ERROR TO PLAN TO WILLINGLY DUPLICATE YOUR MISDEEDS.
Hamas,has shown that they are not a partner for peace.Abbas is marginalized.Every inch of returned land will be used to lob rockets into Israel.
RES IPSA LOCUTOR -let the matter speak for itself.
It is time Olmert stop taking advice from his wife and kids,and wake up and smell the coffee.
Israelis are dying ,and his disengagement as a supreme act of weakness is partly to blame.
In the north the cowardly retreat of Ehud Barak from Lebanon in the middle of the night,stranding our SLA friends sent a similar message of weaknes to Hezbollah and Syria.
Perhaps it will take katushas on the Knesset building for Olmert to wake up.
In the meantime, the battle in the north shows that the Israelis have become unaccustomed to a tough enemy buried 100 feet in bunkers.They have been wasting some time fighting with Israeli settlers, and poorly trained palestinians, at the expense of preparing for Hezbollah.
