Can Ehud Olmert be Trusted? Ask Ehud

Can Olmert be trusted?

Depends who you ask.

Ehud Olmert thinks he can be trusted.

Olmert told the Israeli ministers on Sunday that the deployment of the Lebanese Army along the Israeli-Lebanese border was a situation that one could have only "fantasized" about before the war.

"If a month and a half ago someone would have suggested such an objective, the public would have reacted by saying one should not propose unachievable goals (such as this)," Olmert said.
"I am not arguing that everything has changed, but it is indeed possible to say that Lebanon is experiencing a turning point," the prime minister added.

Obviously he has convinced himself that he achieved something in the war. According to his theory, I would ask him, what took him so long to accept the peace fire?

Well, the fact that he didn’t accept the peace-fire straight away tells me that he didn’t achieve his goal.

So, Ehud, keep on talking.

More talk…

He promised the Israeli people – never to swap soldiers for terrorists, for if they do so, the terrorists will kidnap more soldiers.

Hizbullah's leader Hassan Nasrallah claimed in the first post-war interview on Sunday that contacts were being held to bring about a prisoner swap between Israel and Hizbullah.

Nasrallah, who spoke with Lebanese NTV television, announced that he was willing to begin negotiations and that Italy had taken an interest in playing a lead role.

Did Olmert lie?

I think he has an excuse.

Nasrallah also said that Hizbullah would not have kidnapped the two IDF soldiers had he known that Israel's response would be so intense.

According to this they won’t kidnap soldiers again as they don’t want the Israelis to attack them.

But hey, can Nasrallah be trusted?!

The Israelis need a new leadeship under someone who thinks before he speaks. Olmert has caused unnecessary bloodshed of his own people as well as of the Lebanese. He's a politician, not a leader.
