You’re surprised by the left turn? In the campaign didn’t Olmert promise essentially what was Peace Now’s platform in 1996?
Hi SD, I am very surprised, certainly Olmert discussed continuing along the lines of unilateral action in the Sharon vision should no progress come..
But the list of changes / surprises is long to me
I cannot fathom how Olmert considers himself mandated and is refusing direct referendums, not when his moves will require Meretz & Arab party assistance to just barely squeeze through if at all, that’s is unacceptable.
More than all that, I am concerned about Olmert being willing to make decisions on Iran should they be necessary, a govt entirely in opposition to the right by its makeup does not instill confidence in me at such pivotal times. The Defense Minister seems more concerned with maps of the settlements than maps of Iran, that’s Olmert’s doing all this past month. I hope history sees that fact as totally unremarkable.
Thanks for the comment allowing me to clarify, will be posting this week to follow up on the left hand graphic that’s for sure.
Pay attention to Jewish Current Issues, I’ve been bugging him too. He’s a big fan of Sharon but is contemptuous of Olmert. I’ve been asking him how Olmert is acting differently from the way he expected to Sharon to. I realize his views are slightly different from yours, but overall are quite similar. I’m glad that you don’t mind!
I think the most alarming thing about ‘the dude’ is his comb-over. The prime minstrer has shown poor judgment adopting this goofy look. As someone genetically destined for baldness, I can sympathize. But I think we can all agree that the comb-over fools no one, and only succeeds in making you the butt of all jokes. If we look past the issue of poor taste, I think comb-overs may be indicative of a character flaw- vanity or perhaps weakness / lack of confidence. Our leaders need not be hirstute, but at least they should be comfortable with their flaws. PS: Dad, if you’re reading this, don’t be insulted.
I tried to use an image where the ‘swirl’ was being kept under control.. The Shamir and Ben Gurion look with the mad scientist thing going on is more my favorite, but Ehud is too fashionable to go for that.
Whatever the case may be, he clearly wants to stay away from hats.. (Photo: Olmert in likud ‘inspired’ Hamas hat Photoshop Gag)
That's me, I'm part of the vast global Zionist Conspiracy you often 'read' about ;)
