WAITING FOR THE NEXT STEP

THE FIRST STEP TO REASON AND JUSTICE IN ISRAEL ISN'T DONE BY ANY "POLITICIANS" ...




The first step to reason and justice in Israel doesn't come from the Bush-Rice-friendly Israeli administration but from the Israeli citizens themselves.

And so that uncaring and politacally nearsighted Condoleeza Rice won't have anymore a chance for a candlelight dinner with Olmert while the bombs fall in Lebanon ... a fact that she called "birth pangs of a new Middle East" ... because:

As a poll shows,the majority of Israeli public believes that their government failed in handling Lebanon war, Olmert, Peretz, Halutz should go home, is their slogan ...

There is a political earthquake just now in Israel: A poll published on Friday in the Yedioth Ahrnonoth daily shows that 63 percent of Israelis feel that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert failed in managing the war in Lebanon and should resign.
About 74 percent of those polled said Defense Minister Amir Peretz mishandled the war and should resign his post.

Soldiers on reserve duty continue struggle. Hundreds participated in the protest march of reserve soldiers and bereaved families on Friday. The participants left from the Beit Shemesh area, near Jerusalem, and ended the march next to the tomb of late Prime Minister Golda Meir on Mount Herzl in the capital. Once there, they had a moment of silence in memory of the fallen soldiers.

Elipaz Balua, the father of Nadav who was killed in Lebanon, read a letter he wrote to his son: "It hurts me not just because I lost you, but because of an entire nation who lost its direction and because her leaders who cannot take responsibility and say 'we were wrong, we need to go home'," he said. "It hurts me that I brought you up to love your country unconditionally, and for the first time in my life I stand and ask myself 'Is this the right way? Is it right to bring up a child to love the country unconditionally and to give his life for it when our leaders are unreasonable and lack honesty and decency? "

Man is not made of steel,
He has a heart and soul,
He cries and laughs,

He loves and hurts,
He charges.
He is wounded and cries out,
He is flesh and blood.

MY DEFINITIVELY LAST POST ON THIS BLOG FOR A LONG TIME


I'll not publish a post on this blog anymore, as long as those war criminals, who have brought a bloody disaster into our global village, are not deprived of their power ...

So I don't cancel my blog but I only close now this diary for ethical reasons for a while ...


Shalom Aleychem ... Salam Aleykum ... Peace be unto you !

HERE WE GO ! NOW WE KNOW IT EXACTLY!


Two weeks ago the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice blithely announced that what's going on in Lebanon and Iraq today were the "birth pangs of a new Middle East".


Such outrageous words could be also pronounced by one of the female guards in the Nazi concentration camps circa 60 years ago ...

( Of the 55,000 guards who served in Nazi concentration camps, about 3,600 were women. In 1942, the first female guards arrived at Auschwitz and Majdanek from Ravensbrück. The year after, the Nazis began conscripting women because of a guard shortage.

The German title for this position, Aufseherin, (plural Aufseherinnen) means female overseer or attendant. )


However, enough is enough! What a shame!

AMEN
