Feed the prisoners terrorists

Every couple of weeks we hear that the 'Palestinians' are suffering, especially in Gaza and that we must send them food and open all the roadblocks, because otherwise they will starve. And yet, they have taken the greenhouses that they were given when the Jews were expelled from Gaza two years ago and used them to house weapons tunnels.

But fear not folks. The 'Palestinians' are now going to start worrying about their 'starving people.' Sort of. Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert met today with 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen and with unelected 'Palestinian' Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. And together they agreed to start feeding the 'Palestinian people.'
Olmert accepted a request made by Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, who also took part in the meeting, to send aid to security prisoners jailed in Israel, including food, drinks and cigarettes.
As you may recall, the 'Palestinian prisoners' aren't exactly living in deprivation anyway.

I was about to ask how on earth Olmert & Co. are still in office.

Then I remembered that we Americans elected Dhimmi Carter and -TWICE!- Bill Clinton...and almost Al Gore and John Kerry.

Democracy certainly doesn't guarantee wisdom or correctness in "We, the People".

Carl, do you have any predictions as to when the next Israeli election will come? And the chances of getting rid of this man and his allies and perhaps electing Likud and Netanyahu (or others with sense and moral fortitude)?

Dave in Pa.,

Not until at least three months after the Winograd final report comes out, which may not be for another year.

Ehud Barak had claimed that he would pull the Labor party out of the government if Olmert didn't resign before the final Winograd report came out, but earlier this week he said that Labor has to stay in the government because of the 'peace process.'

The truth is that Labor is stuck in the government because they spent in the last elections based on the 30 Knesset seats they had, and they wound up with 18. So they are broke and cannot afford another election right now, and they are staying in the government.
