Olmert explained that Israel has never permitted an outside source to determine its defense and security needs, and Jerusalem is not about to begin doing so now.

As such, he explained that the rocket attacks that have been taking place all day are proof the IDF must continue Operation Cast Lead in the hope of bringing an end to the Hamas regime in Gaza which continues to target Israeli civilian population centers without provocation.

In the meantime, the IDF is waiting for the governmental green light to begin launching phase three of the counter-terror operation, ordering over 10,000 IDF troops, including reservists, into Gaza to eliminate the Izzadin el-Kassam military wing of Hamas, which is responsible for the continuous attacks launched into Israel.

  1. Everyone must remember ONE THING – It’s all from HASHEM, nothing that Olmert or anyone from the Israeli government says is causing anything to happen.

  2. Whenever I read about Olmert since this operation started I can’t believe that this is the same guy who was just talking about sacrificing the west bank and Yerushalayim to the arabs… I think this is obvious siyata dishmaya…
