The Absence of Shame

That is what I'm struck by more than anything in the wake of the interim Winograd report. The absence of shame by the pathetic leaders of Israel. Had they the least bit of it, Olmert and Peretz (and the entire government for that matter) would have resigned long ago but especially after the release of the report. It is very sad and, potentially, very dangerous to the country.

Are they so hungry for power that they can't see what 97% of the people of Israel see? They are finished. Kadima is finsished. As it should be. It's only a matter of time but much damage can be done during that time.

(Keep in mind that the interim report does not even address the last few days of the war when the incoherent leaders finally gave orders for an expanded ground campaign (in which 30 soldiers were killed in the last two days) when it was already too late).

It is time for Olmert to finally do the honarable thing. But he is not an honorable man.

    He is so dishonorable that he does not even shrink from publicizing his bald political calculation; i.e. he said publicly that his hope to convince Kadima MKs to support him would be by showing them that otherwise they will be ousted too. He is truly without shame.

    Olmert is certainly coming across as being far less of a man, in all ways, than Sharon.


    As for Amir Peretz, Abdelkader Benali, writing from Beirout during the war, said it best, stating that whenever he saw the man on televison he saw the face of a fellow Moroccan who was baffled at how the heck he got there and wondering what the heck he was doing. While hoping to stay one step ahead of his underlings.

    Olmerts approval rating has slipped even more...it's now down to 2.3%

    According to Channel 2's poll, it's down to 0%.

    I just deleted a comment that had nothing to do with this thread. Please keep your comments on topic. If you don't like George Bush, go comment about it when I post about George Bush.

    Thank you. The stupidity and mean-spiritedness of that post left me speechless, or rather typeless. It's bad enough having to read it everywhere else morons congregate.
