In a cabinet meeting yesterday Olmert decided to stop the “turn the other cheek” policy that’s been taken in Sderot. The rockets continue and with Arkadi Gaidamak starting his latest “Evacuation for Popularity” Campaign, it just “looks” bad. It seems that’s Arkadi is really pissing off Olmert, “Hamas likes to see town’s getting evacuated as a result of its attacks”, he said. Olmert did emphasize that the ministry of defense needs to use its resources to help the people in Sderot (good luck there…).
This makes me think about Arkadi again. I suspect that Arkadi is missing the whole “fighting for survival”, “Israel Independence” idea. I can understand that if you’re rich and things get “uncomfortable” you just leave and go on vacation. But, is this something that we can all afford?
I wonder where we would have been if Arkadi Gaidamak was in Israel during the early days of Israel’s existence. I mean if we evacuated every time we were under attack, well. I would be probably writing this from London, as one of her Majesty’s loyal subjects….
