OLMERT speaking: "Wants to strengthen the moderates"
"People of Israel deserve peace and security"
They deserve a Prime Minister who protects and defends the nation's security and sovereignty.
BUSH: "We share a common vision of two states living side by side in peace." "There is a moral reason.........." "Must have two states living side-by-side in peace"
A moral reason? There is no morality in rewarding barbarians Mr. President. They must be crushed not rewarded with A STATE in which to operate.
Not one reporter will ask the hard questions.
BUSH: "THese people have been denied for a long time of leadership that will help them"
THEY ELECTED HAMAS MR PRESIDENT!
BUSH: "Deeply committed to the cause of democracy" "Extremists attack democracies in the Middle East" (ie Lebanon, Iraq etc)
Then why reward the extremists?
Olmert: "Hamas has killed many Palestinians"
So has Fatah, Abu Dana Olmert.
Olmert: "Main vision is to create a Palestinain state. We have to create the groundwork to start negotiations to create a Palestinian state." "Ultimate goal is a Palestinian state"
THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE. INCOMPREHENSIBLE.
Olmert: Talking about "Palestinian suffering is unacceptable." "We must end human suffering in Gaza"
What about Jewish suffering you asshat. They elected Hamas!
Olmert blew it man. He blew it last summer when Bush gave him carte blanche to remove Hezb'Allah. He had the American people, the people of Israel behind him. He had two Arab govenments. Bush cannot have any respect for this man. This two state bullshit is Olmert's wish.
BUSH on Iraq: We must have the determinaton, will to bring democracy to the Middle east. this is the greatest challenge of our time." "We cannot allow it to become a sanctuary for terrorrists."
Bush on military action of Iran: "All options are on the table." "I understand the serious threat to the security of Israel .........not only Israel but the Middle East" "We have an obligation to try to solve it diplomatically" "At least we have unanimity so far on the UNSC"
uh really? what about China and Russia?
Mega wrote in the comments,
"WHY is Olmert talking about the needs, aspirations, and concessions to be made to Palestinians? Hamas just took over Gaza. Israel is now basically surrounded on all sides by implacable Jihadists, and if and when the west bank falls, they will be completely surrounded.
Is not a press conference with Bush the right moment to bring to the world's attention things like: Israel being surrounded by jihadists, the rockets falling on their cities like Sderot, the hostages, etc. Isn't that what Olmert should be doing - representing Israel and the Jewish people?
How on earth can we expect anyone else in the world to take Israel and its security needs seriously if the main topic of conversation from the head of Israel is how very, very much he looks forward to a Palestinian state?
Here he is, on TV in front of many millions in a live press conference with President Bush. A golden opportunity to tell or remind the world of what's really going on. And it's all about the sad, helpless Palestinians.
It's morally ill.
