A poll by the Ma’ariv daily newspaper released on Wednesday revealed that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s popularity with the Israeli on the street has dropped significantly.

Support for the prime minister, who may face a formal inquiry into a real estate deal he made in 2004, dropped from 78% on July 19 to a new low of 40%.

The Re-engagement War with Hizbullah terrorists in southern Lebanon broke out on July 12th after two IDF soldiers were kidnapped by Hizbullah operatives on the northern border. - MORE>>

The convergence plan that served as a cornerstone of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's rise to office may lead to his downfall, members of the coalition said Wednesday. - MORE>>

So what happened to 'finally getting a resolution with teeth'? What happened to 'not returning to the status quo'? What happened to Hizballah no longer being a ' state within a state'? What happened to finally implementing UN Resolution 1559? What happened to the Siniora government being a 'fledgling democracy' that should be propped up against Hizballah? What happened to getting the kidnapped soldiers back? What happened to the people of northern Israel not having an armed Hizballah launching missiles on their northern border anymore? What happened to 'no armed militias in Lebanon'? Since the Lebanese government has announced it will not disarm Hizballah, and has even thanked Hizballah for its defense of Lebanon, and has referred to Hizballah as 'our Moslem brothers,' why should this terrorist supporting government be given any recognition or help from the UN and internaitonal community? Seems the Lebanese government does not think too much of Resolution 1701, so WHY should Israel not proceed to attack and finish the job it started?

CAN ANYONE POINT ME TO ONE SINGLE THING THAT SECRETARY RICE SAID BEFOREHAND ABOUT GETTING A LEGITIMATE CEASEFIRE DEAL THAT HAS NOT TURNED OUT TO BE A BOLDFACED LIE? WERE ANY ASSURANCES MADE TO ISRAEL AT ALL, OR WAS THAT ALL JUST FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION? WHAT WAS ISRAEL TOLD TO GET ACCEPTANCE OF THE DEAL? WHAT WAS THE PRESSURE? WHY DID ISRAEL ACCEPT A KNOWN LIE?

That Bush and Rice are boldfaced liars is obvious, but I want to know what Olmert knew, and WHEN he knew it. I want to know the REAL story of this deal, and not all the lies fed to the public. I want to know whether Kadima was just stupid, and duped by Bush and Rice, whether there was pressure that amounted to blackmail, or to what extent Kadima was a willing participant in the deception and lies.

The More Things Change

Shmuel Rosner of Haaretz provides today's humor: Olmert - the end?

For a moment there I thought I was reading about the U.S. midterms! The names had been changed to protect the guilty parties, but the story was pretty much the same...

However, the French, not to be outdone by Rosner, provided this:

French President Doubles Symbolic Force in Lebanon

WOW! Now that's what I call a major farce buildup! No pun intended. I guess the plan is to make Hizballah die laughing...

No, wait, I've got it! It's a secret French plan for getting rid of some of its Moslems! The French Moslem volunteers will be lining up for blocks to sign on for the Lebanon mission to protect and fight alongside Hizballah and all the other Moslems from Indonesia and Malaysia!
