Olmert on Gaza: Crisis? What Crisis?
You have to wonder how stupid he thinks we are.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert denied in an interview published Friday that Palestinians were experiencing a "humanitarian crisis" and said Israel would buy them any medicine they need.They prefer to kill them with missiles.
"We wouldn't allow one baby to suffer one night because of a lack of dialysis," Olmert said in an interview with The New York Times.
Claims that the Palestinians face "humanitarian crisis" are "for the time being total propaganda," the Israeli leader said.They prefer to wait until it's too late to do anything about it. That's when their PR team works overtime to come up with post-hoc excuses for the delay.
Olmert said that any medicines purchased by Israel would be given directly to hospitals, bypassing Hamas, which is sworn to Israel's destruction.Who is he kidding? Israel lives on grants and AID from the United States. Anything 'they pay' necessarily comes out of OUR pockets!
"We will pay, if necessary, out of our own pockets," Olmert said.
Olmert's comments came days before he heads to Washington for his first meeting as prime minister with President Bush.That explains everything. He doesn't think we're stupid - he thinks Bush is!
At the White House meeting on May 23, Olmert is expected to present his plan to withdraw from most of the West Bank and draw Israel's final borders, unilaterally if necessary.
But in the newspaper interview, Olmert remained vague about the details of the plan, which would annex the three largest West Bank settlement blocs for Israel.
And on that count, he's right.
