My friend Yossi Klein HaLevi yesterday wrote that we are all 'brokenhearted,' at the victory that we handed Hizbullah, at the mealy mouthed PM and FM and DM and COS who made it possible, and at the state of our country.
We're not broken-hearted. We're outraged. We are seething with anger and frustration at the arrogant, defeatist and cognitively egocentric character of our putative leaders.
Reserve soldiers don't want to go home, but to finish the war. People who spent over a month in shelters are willing to stay there until Hizbullah is destroyed. Why? Because they understand what Olmert and Co. don't. This is a war for our existence. We are not tired of fighting, since e are fighting for our very lives. Our instincts are healthy. Jews, you see, have an incredible ability to survive.
Olmert is tired...of winning. So he handed us a defeat.
You can feel the groundswell under your feet. The government's transparent attempts to blame Bibi for the defeat will speed his way back to the premiership.
Please God, the inner rot that characterizes this government (and the 'tired elites') will sweep it away and allow the healthy instincts of the Jews of Israel to come through.
