Imagine that America had elections for President and Congress, today. Imagine that the leading contender for the White House and his party in Congress wanted to give California, Texas, and parts of Michigan, New York, etc. to Al Qaeda, in hopes that the group would stop attacks on America. The candidate said he is tired of fighting the terrorists and just wants to give in.
Would you vote for that candidate and his party? That’s what’s going to happen with today’s likely election of Ehud Olmert as Prime Minister of Israel and his defeatist Kadima Party as the majority coalition partner in Israel’s Parliament, the Knesset.
To understand more about this situation, read my father’s excellent guest column analyzing today’s election, “One Little Lamb & 3+ Bad Wolves: A Short History of the Mid-East Peace Process.”
