Olmert - "The claim that we lost is unfounded"
As usual, the truth emerges.
It might have been said that 'Israel lost' had their goal been to eliminate Hizbullah. But, then you would've had to accept the absurd notion that Hizbullah was an existential 'threat' to Israel to begin with, which it is not, and never was.
From the outset, Israel's goal was to destroy Lebanon.
The notion that Hizbullah 'defeated' Israel is only entertained to take the sting out of the appalling scale of death and destruction wrought by Israel's unprovoked, premeditated assault on a defenseless Arab population.
"What did you think, that there would be a war and nothing would happen to our soldiers," Olmert asked the committee. "The claim that we lost is unfounded. Half of Lebanon is destroyed; is that a loss?"I wish I could say that I'm shocked, but I'm not.
This is typical of a government that sees nothing wrong with maintaining a Jewish majority by either killing or expelling everyone else.
