Sometimes I just can't believe how dense people can be. Especially the leaders of countries. I guess I should be used to it by now, but good grief!
WorldNetDaily reported today, "Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said yesterday Israel will forge ahead with his plan to pull out of Judea and Samaria."
This is stupidity on top of myopia on top of misjudgment. This is one more case of politicians who implement a program and never stop to evaluate its effectiveness. They just keep on doing more of the same reckless thing.
Since Olmert obviously doesn't understand the principles of cause and effect, here's what happens, in this order:
1. Israel withdraws unilaterally from territory.
2. Israel's enemies are sucked into the territory to fill the void.
3. Israel's enemies bring in weapons and fortifications.
4. Israel's enemies attack Israel.
It's that simple, but Olmert doesn't get it.
If Israel really withdraws from the West Bank, after their examples in Gaza and Lebanon, I'm ready to qoute to Olmert from that great philosopher, Jimminy Cricket: "You buttered your bread, now sleep in it!"
