Dan Halutz: Most Blatant Paradigm of Systemic Me-Firstism Rampant Throughout Gov’t. of Israel…

Halutz: ‘Mr. PM, We Won the War’ (From Ynet)

Halutz smiled and called the prime minister, who was smoking a cigar as he waited in his Jerusalem home to receive the general’s phone call. “All long-range rockets have been destroyed,” Halutz declared. Then, he added three words that haunt him to this day: “We won the war.”

Hezbollah used a method that they most likely learned from the Iranians, and succeeded, among other things, in cracking the code of IDF communications devices, including quick transfers between frequencies. As such, the organization was able to track reports of Israeli casualties and, thus, control the media battle by reporting Israeli fatalities first.  [...]  Click here to read more.

Mean Me’ir’s Perk, For Doing Absolutely Nothing …

He’s Back, but Refugees Have No Home By Ido Efrati (Ynet)

Commentary;

Meir Sheetrit, he of the mean, nasty, divisive mouth, the boorish bully who is confused about his identity, roots and ideology gets rewarded with a 2nd ministry, Justice, in addition to the Housing Ministry in which capacity he utterly neglected the citizens of the north.

Meir Sheetrit has not a hint of clue as to what “Tzedek, Tzedek tierdof…” (‘Justice, justice you shall pursue…’) means. MB

Commission of Inquiry Needs to Investigate Regime’s Lack of Compassion for Citizens of the North…

Olmert is Waiting for Ravitz By Ruth Sinai (Haaretz)

For context, click here and here

“If a commission of inquiry is established, it will have to conclude that by his failure to appoint a minister of social affairs, Olmert left the civilian population to its own devices.”

Excerpts;

In a meeting at the Prime Minister’s Office during the war, one of the participants remarked that there is no minister of social affairs. “What do you mean, there is no minister of social affairs?” Prime Minister Ehud Olmert snapped. “I am the minister of social affairs.” Olmert’s response reflects cynicism and insensitivity, for which no declarations about his deep concern for the civilian population and his commitment to rehabilitating the north can atone. His comment is as much in need of an official examination as are other matters.  [...]  Click here to read more.

The People’s Commission of Inquiry: General Elections …

The Necessary Accounting By Caroline Glick

“Olmert and his colleagues require the fiction of Abbas as a moderate leader and the fiction of Fatah as a moderate counterweight to Hamas to justify their planned policy of retreating from Judea and Samaria.

It becomes self-evident that both the demand for Olmert, Peretz and Halutz to resign and the demand that an accounting be made of the mistakes that led Israel to its strategic defeat in Lebanon are necessary.

The only way that the proper lessons can be drawn is for the current military and political leadership to be replaced by alternative leaders capable of understanding the nature of the threats that surround us. For both objectives to be achieved, the only commission of inquiry that should be established is the inquiry of the citizens of the state that takes place in general elections.” [...]  Click here to read more.

Preparedness to Expel Jews Vs Total Unpreparedness and Incompetence of Government to Fight Sworn Enemies of Jews…

The First Punic War of Lebanon by Elyakim Haetzni (Israel National News)

When the complaints of reservists reached the media to the effect that the IDF was not able to supply them with, among other things, water, I recalled images from the nightmare of the expulsion from Gush Katif; images of policemen and soldiers wearing their best expulsion outfits, with a stylish, uniform water bottle clipped on their backs. It was another piece of equipment of an organized and well-equipped army – but only for the oppression and expulsion of “the enemy within,” the settlers.  [...]  Click here to read more.
