I am very pleased that Olmert said the following today as they were swearing in the new government which he will lead.
anyone who believes in “complete equality of civil rights between Jews and Arabs must understand that a division of the land, with the goal of ensuring a Jewish majority, is Zionism’s lifeline.”
He also said,
“The borders of Israel that will be shaped over the coming years will be significantly different from the territory currently held by Israel. That is the government’s plan, that is the foundation of its existence. That is the promise we gave to the Israeli voter whose trust we asked for and received.”
“Only a person in whose soul Eretz Yisrael burns knows the pain of letting go of our ancestral heritage. But wishing and recognizing a right do not constitute a foreign policy plan. Even if the Jewish eye cries and the heart is torn, we must preserve the main thing. We must maintain a stable and strong Jewish majority in our state, and therefore we must focus on the area where there is a secure and protected Jewish majority.”
I wish him and the hottie next to him (if you looked at the guy with the moustache, I fear for you) the best of luck.
