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.

(Yitzhak Rabin)

It's as though some people want this to be WWIII. I am very glad you brought the information on Israeli's who are against the war. Here in America people seem to want to "prove" their Jewishness by promoting war. They invoke the Holocaust in Europe, but they don't see that blood is red whether it is Jewish or Palestinian blood. Olmert has shown that he is incompetent, along with the arrogant israeli generals. Israel, acting on behalf of the U.S. proved incapable of starting the larger war that they desired, which would have given the U.S. administration extra impetus to win mid term elections.
The Nation State is a political concept whose time has come, and gone.

I think that we are already in the beginning of WW III, and Israel is abused as henchman for the "Bushism" ...
"World War III will be a guerrilla information war",said the philosopher Marshall McLuhan,"with no division between military and civilian participation"...

Thank you, Prmod! A global change to a global justice will be made only by the citizens of our Global Village and not by any "imperialistic politicians" and so we can hope that there will be a second step soon!

Im sorry for being late. That father's letter and Rabin's words are most striking, and as far as I can remember it's the first time a gap is visible between citizens and politicians in Israel. I can only hope it is a sign for new developments in the region.
I don't like at all that so many people keep talking about a WW III, as if that were somehow a fact. We all know that the more we speak about something the more it is likely to happen. That's very dangerous indeed, and worries me a lot.
Thank you for being back! We all need you. :-)

I'm glad you're back. But I think Israel is going to get very nasty soon and things will get even more unpleasant.

Daniel: I agree 100%. Damned annoying.

Thank you, Ricardo!
Here is a link to the Canadian philosopher Marshal McLuhan who created the term of "The Global Village" where we are already living in. I think you will like his ideas!
