True Colors: The left in Israel shows where it stands
Astounding, with the right & opposition remaining remarkably quiet in the face of what they see as absurd amounts of restraint for weeks and even months on end, giving the Olmert govt plenty of room with little if any official criticism, who comes out all high mighty to whine & yell the second things don't go exactly their way? The far left, Meretz-Yahad and Zahava Gal-On.
Faction Chairwoman MK Zahava Gal-On called on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to reach attend the Knesset to answer questions on the operation such as its scope, time of ending, and how it is advancing the release of the kidnapped soldier and the ending of rocket attacks.
In the middle of the LIMITED operations which are much smaller than the Security Cabinet authorized, after weeks & months of failed lefty crap in the face of kassams, two weeks now of nowhere diplomacy after two IDF troops were killed, a civilian murdered and a third troop abducted.. Rockets hitting Ashkelon, Sderot in rapid fashion.
With IDF troops engaged IN fire, and calls by the PA for Palestinian Security forces (armed by ISRAEL) to 'fight off the aggressors and shoot the IDF' - the leader of Meretz, peace now morons extraordinaire, architects of Oslo failure, ralliers of disengagement dreams, have tabled a non confidence motion and called for the PM to head down to the Knesset and answer their claims!? While the entire right sits quietly as it should during a time of heightened stress.
Honor, love of country, meaningless. Only treason, double standards, and surrender is an option. Wow, take a good long look at Beilin, Zahava & Meretz – the clowns of Israel.
