Olmert to Resign

Posted by Ryan on July 30, 2008

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said today that he is not going to run again as leader of the Kadima Party after the September 17 primary elections.  He’s leaving it for his Kadima successor to try and put together a governing coalition. 

I’m not an Olmert fan — two summers ago, shelling an border fighting caused two Israelis to be taken by Hezbollah in Lebanon.  Israel demanded their safe return and for Hezbollah to stop shelling Israeli border towns.  After 33 days the UN brokered an end to the fighting, but no Israeli soldiers were returned — not even their bodies!  Some called it Israel’s biggest defeat, and it was under Olmert’s watch.

Only recently were those soldier’s bodies returned, in exchange for a murdering terrorist’s release along with other deviants!  The Olmert government has been appeasing on all fronts and should go sooner than later.  The Israelis could use another dose of the tough-talking and acting Netanyahu, especially since the Iraq War is quieting down.

    About time and I’m amazed he lasted as long as he did. Time to bring in Bibi and end this Kadima experiment.
