Olmert Identified the Problem and Solved It
On June 9, 2005, at the Israel Policy Forum Tribute Dinner, in New York City, then Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert spoke the following words:
"We are tired of fighting, we are tired of being courageous, we are tired of winning, we are tired of defeating our enemies ….” [See "Churchill and Olmert: A Study in Contrast," The Hedgehog Blog, May 2, 2006.]
We are tired of winning, we are tired of defeating our enemies. Well, Ehud, you certainly found a way to solve that problem!
Not surprisingly, the Jerusalem Post reports today that Olmert is delaying a government decision on the type of inquiry commission that will investigate into the conduct of the war. When, oh when, will the nationalist right and the religious parties initiate a vote of no confidence in this government?
