Olmert attempts to keep the world’s focus where it should. I hope he will be successful in this, for the problem the West faces now is that so many of its leaders do not even recognize the evil that must be resisted. The world outcry against Israel is a prime example of this. “Olmert: Operation will stop when Hizbullah disarms,” from AP, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
Israel will not halt its offensive in Lebanon until Hizbullah is disarmed, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Friday.
Olmert made the comments during a telephone call with U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Israeli government officials said Friday. Olmert agreed to allow a U.N. team come to the area to try to mediate a cease-fire, an official close to Olmert said….
Olmert said he would only cooperate with the U.N. team if its mandate would be to free the captured Israeli soldiers and force Lebanon to comply with a U.N. resolution that calls on it to deploy its forces along its border with Israel, moving Hizbullah guerrillas out of the area, the official said.
