**** UPDATE: Read my late Dad’s 2006 column on Ehud Olmert–Right on the Money ****
Many right-minded thinking people are happy that corrupt, left-wing Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced yesterday he’ll soon be gone.
I applaud it too, since Olmert, his left-wing hag wife, lesbian activist daughter, and draft-dodging expatriate artist son who lives in France, are the kinds of Israelis who will bring and are bringing Israel’s destruction. (His bitchy wife and daughter made a career in “Machshon Watch,” a group which harasses Israeli soldiers at checkpoints, so they can’t adequately do their job in searching and catching Islamic terrorists trying to enter the country.)
On the other hand, the reason Olmert is going is not the right reason. And that’s why I’m not celebrating too loudly.
Yes, he’s corrupt and he took money and bribes and did other improper things. But those are like a technicality, compared to the horrid things he’s done to his own country and its people.
Olmert supported the Gaza giveaway and with Ariel Sharon, helped the Palestinians set up a HAMAS terrorist state to Israel’s west. Olmert sent armed police on horses to brutally beat up the people of Amona and two Israeli Members of Parliament, including a Brigadier General (vivid pics of which were taken and posted to the world by Sultan Knish)–all to remove Israelis from their homes to give it to Islamic terrorists.
Then, he started the ball rolling on giving up the Jewish capitol, Jerusalem, to Islamic terrorists. And he started the ball rolling on giving up Israel’s Golan Heights to Islamic terrorists. (Yes, the Jerusalem and Golan Heights deals were always whispered about, but Olmert pushed them into real play.) Then, he released a child-killer terrorist (Samir Kuntar) and four other terrorists for two Israeli soldiers mutilated bones from Hezbollah. That was after a few other outrageous, lopsided terrorist trades he made with the Palestinian terrorists.
And how can we forget the failed war against Hezbollah, in which Olmert went to war to fail and to strengthen its most fierce Islamic terrorist enemy to its north? Olmert–the first Israeli Prime Minister without a serious military background–could have won had he taken the proper steps to win the ground war, steps his Generals all urged him to take but he ignored. He could have defeated Hezbollah once and for all. Instead, he turned it into Israel’s Vietnam, giving up right after he started, losing a lot of Israeli lives, and leaving in defeat and embarrassment with a UN agreement that wasn’t worth the paper it was written on.
None of these things was bad enough for the Israeli people to dump this guy. None of it–none of the systematic self-amputation and self-suffocation of Israel by its own leader was enough to get Israel to throw him out of office. Instead, it took a minor bribery case to make him go. How likely is it that the next sado-masochist, self-mutillating left-wing Israeli Prime Minister will have a bribery scandal sufficient to get him to resign?
Not very likely. Meanwhile, whoever is at the top will be systematically destroying Israel, because not enough Israelis have the guts to say, “NO, We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore!” They will elect another Israeli Jimmy Carter.
I hope I’m wrong. But sadly, right now, I know I’m right.
The problem is Olmert–and the rest of the Israeli leftists of his ilk–are like cockroaches and Muslims bent on our destruction. You get rid of one, there are gazillions in waiting to take over. People like Tzipi Livni–who was mentored and brought up through the ranks of Israeli politics–will replace him. Livni is what we call a “doompa“, a/k/a dumbass. She’s as left as Olmert, and a whole lot more stupid. Golda Meir she ain’t. The chick is truly vapid. She’s Olmert in a skirt with slightly better hair. Yes, she turned on him, but not over policy. That was a bitch power grab move.
So, am I glad to see Olmert go? Hell, yeah. But I know it’s just an ephemeral personnel change, with little substance or policy change at the top of the Israeli government.
Shalom, Ehud. Hello, next Israeli Jimmy Carter.
