Political Analysis and Commentary
on Israeli and Jewish Affairs

"For Zion's sake I shall not hold my peace, And for Jerusalem's sake I shall not rest."

The quotes below speak for themselves:



"We shall not flag nor fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight
in France and on the seas and oceans; we shall fight with growing
confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island
whatever the cost may be; we shall fight on beaches, landing grounds,
in fields, in streets and on the hills. We shall never surrender and
even if, which I do not for the moment believe, this island or a large
part of it were subjugated and starving, then our empire beyond the
seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, will carry on the
struggle until in God\'s good time the New World with all its power and
might, sets forth to the liberation and rescue of the Old."
Winston Churchill

June 4, 1940 in a speech before the House of Commons


"We are tired of fighting, we are tired of being courageous, we are
tired of winning, we are tired of defeating our enemies, we want that
we will be able to live in an entirely different environment of
relations with our enemies."
Ehud Olmert
June 9, 2005 in a speech to Israel Policy Forum in New York

This sort of attitude must be our
- we MUST NOT elect such a defeatist to be PM. Even this few weeks are already a disaster!
