Yesterday, July 17 2008, a date that will live in ignominy, the State of Israel, led by a corrupt politician, an incomepetent Leftist wanna be, a disgraced former Prime Minister and a Haredi politico who would sell anything for a handout, capitulated to terror. By releasing Samir Kuntar for the dead bodies of Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, Olmert/Livni/Barak/Yishai declared that terror pays; that Jewish lives are cheap and that Jews will not fight for their safety and right to self-determination. These are not the rantings of a right winger, but the cold observations of Shlomo Avineri and Ari Shavit. Both lean left, politically. Both are loyal Israelis, Jews and Zionists.
