It is the time to do something big and substantial....if we don't it will display that Hizbullah can hit us and it will continue to do so in the future. Appeasing Europe is a waste of time because they will condemn us anyway...so we might as well. How will citizens of the North go backhome knowing that Olmert has signed the deal on the continuation of rocket attacks so as to gain international support that will NEVER come? No-one is going to help us...we have to do it ourselves and to hell with Europe. They should know that if they allow the spread of Iran, Hezbullah etc. and turn a blind eye that we will not hesitate to endanger the whole region. Our moral war...does not gain any respect in Europe..and makes us the laughing stock of the Arab states. OLMERT...DO IT...NOW !!! You have most of the Israeli population behind you.
