Best quotes so far

As a follow-up to my earlier post today, I've been following the reports of today's Knesset session and the predicted outburst:

"You are against the government because you [simply] don't want peace"

~Prime Minister Olmert~ 

Yeah that's it.  Because Everyone to the right of Kadima simply wants to see the bloodshed continue.  Excellent point!

"[Labor MKs are] wimps from the land of wimps"

~Likud faction chairman Gideon Sa'ar~

Not the height of diplomatic discourse... but hard to argue with.

"[Kadima and Labor] don't have a shred of confidence in each other. But that doesn't bother [them] making dubious deals in the dead of night"

~Likud faction chairman Gideon Sa'ar~

It does seem fitting that this bit of skulduggery took place late at night.

"This is a coalition of cowards and your night-time agreement is an agreement of cowards. You are scared to death of elections and of the public"

~Likud faction chairman Gideon Sa'ar~

That's it exactly.  We are being led by people who are more afraid of the public than of our enemies!

What a circus. It would be hilarious if it weren't so deadly serious. How can these clowns be allowed to determine Isral's future?

Netanyahu said:
This is a government of failure. You are simply a government who does not care. Actually, you do care - you care how to keep your seats. This Knesset and government have spent themselves... your politics takes precedence over security and this week you proved this. The government has lost faith in itself."

Saar had a row with speaker Dalia Itzik and astonishingly, Zahava Galon from Meretz DEFENDED Likud's Saar: (from the same Ynet link).

"I may not agree with Saar's expressions, but it is the right of those in the opposition to take the stand and state their criticism. Mouths should not be gagged. The Speaker should protect MKs and not the government".

Good for her!

You see enemies, they see political assets. I won’t be surprised to see the General embark on a major incursion before Israelis head for the polls.
