Sderot's Mayor resigns in protest

Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal resigned from his position today in protest of the Olmert-Barak-Livni junta's refusal to act to protect his city. On a day when some twenty Kassam rockets hit Sderot, the peabrains who call themselves a government decided not to send the IDF into Gaza today to put a stop to the shooting, and instead decided to talk to the shooters 'Palestinians' about giving them their own state reichlet from which they will be able to shoot more comfortably.
Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal surprisingly announced his resignation during an interview with Israel Radio, Wednesday afternoon.

Plagued in recent months by allegations of corruption [which pale by comparison with Olmert's CiJ], Moyal has in the past suspended himself from duty, but the reason he gave for his resignation Wednesday was the burden of running a town beleaguered by ongoing rocket fire for the past seven years.

"This role is too big for any person … I do not want to stay in office until the day 20 children die in Sderot," he told the station.

"It's something I've been thinking of for a long time. I don't want to make the decision to open schools tomorrow because a Kassam might land there and I'll be blamed for opening the school."

"True, I'm responsible for the future of the residents, but I just cannot continue dealing with these issues every day. Everyone here is desperate. We've been neglected for seven years. No one cares anymore."

Moyal made his announcement as post-Annapolis talks were set to kick off in Jerusalem.

Also on Wednesday, the security cabinet decided not to approve a large-scale military operation inside the Gaza Strip, although targeted operations were set to continue.

In the past year, the IDF initiated 115 operations in Gaza aimed at stopping rocket launching. This amounts to, on average, at least one operation once every two days. A total of 260 terrorists have been killed since the operations began. [What's missing here is how many Kassams have been shot in the past year. The answer: A heck of a lot more than 115 or 260 or one every two days. CiJ]

According to Army Radio, during the cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Ehud Barak praised the military's performance, noting that the army's operations and the economic sanctions are bearing fruit - Hamas's support is decreasing and according to intelligence evaluations, the Palestinian public is starting to rise up against Hamas. [Delusional. Simply delusional. Where can I get some of the drugs he must be taking? If they're rising up against Hamas, it's to replace them with the 'good terrorists' from the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades. That isn't exactly an improvement. CiJ].

Following conditions on the ground, which security official said were relatively favorable to Israel, the cabinet estimated that a large-scale military operation in Gaza can be postponed.
Are there any "conditions on the ground" that this group of putzes would not call "favorable to Israel"?

But hey, it's only Sderot. Send in the clowns!

So why do the populace tolerate Olmert's government? I'm not asking rhetorically, I just really don't understand.
