Olmert's words...

… on the Israeli response to the Shalit kidnapping and the repeated Qassam missile launching on Israeli territory: ‘I don`t know of one democratic country in the world, one, that would accept and do nothing when 1,000 missiles are shot at innocent civilians at the heart of the country. Some of those who preach to us would have done a lot more in a more brutal, vicious and cruel way.’

Some? I think we could make that all. (The analysis at the link makes the case that Israel’s intention is to change the rules of engagement with Hamas as they have with Hezbollah. Interesting.)

MEANWHILE: Remember how the Palestinians have been negotiating for the release of all those supposedly innocent women and children in Israeli jails (children by their definition)? Read this.
