    as far as I know Switzerland does not even have an army, bc that's how nice neighbors she has, life without threats, without fear, without stress. Is Olmert offering the same armyless model to Israel; to a country surrounded by bloodthrrsty packs of wolves scanning an opportunity to tear Israel apart and eat it up the minute the IDF's vigilant eye closes? Olmert is too funny a person to be angry at, bc his opinions sound humoristic in my ears like this one again and to be honest, it made me laugh so much my tummy hurts. - Olmert has skillfully forgotten that the largest ever built underground hospital in the whole wide world for nuclear holocaust victims have been built in Israel and it is equipped with the latest modern technology. Also more bomb-shelters have been built all over Israel. Yes it costs. I see Netanyahu as the modern day's biblical figure Noah, who gathered diverse species into his Ark in order to rescue them from the flood that 'd come so that life on Earth 'd survive. Netanyahu wants the Jewish nation to survive; don't we all .... even Olmert? Oh, almost forgot, he and his family are protected in their comfortable mansion in Switzerland unlike most of the Israelis, so naturally looking at Israel from there makes it nice and easy to Olmert to criticize Netanyahu's politics. Olmert has been too long in Switzerland and lost his touch with Israel's reality. Too bad! - To Olmert I say: get a gripp man, to Netanyahu I say: thank you so very, very much. When it comes to the IDF in whose hands Israel's security and survival lie, no money is enough, Israel's survival always comes FIRST !!
