The answer is not for Mr Olmert to go for reasons associated with the outcome of the recent war - that would in itself inflict more on Israel than could be bearable in all the circumstances of this instance; it is the belief and notion that all its Arab neighbours could be subdued endlessly (by speedy resort to violence and exclusive domineering power) that should Go. The lessons learnt in this war is not that Israel is lagging and/or less disciplined than ever before, it really is that its opponents (equally committed to their own cause) had all the reasons and intent to catch up. Rocketry and less sophisticated delivery means has proven beyond conjecture that mayhem and destruction is not that unachievable. What must now come in is the view and conviction of mutual acknowledgment and just compromise. Conquering others hearts and souls needs not military or other such enforcement powers - it merely requires acknowledgment of their genuine aspirations and true rights. It is high time that the distinction between Jewry and its neighbours is better evaluated and attended. I await!
