Olmert: Stop the attacks, or we'll bring the pain

One reason I support Israel is because when they say something like this, they back it up.

Olmert: We'll fight on until attacks end, soldiers returned

"Citizens of Israel, there are moments in the life of a nation, when it is compelled to look directly into the face of reality and say: no more," he said.

"And I say to everyone: no more. Israel will not be held hostage - not by terror gangs or by a terrorist authority or by any sovereign state,"

"There is nothing we want more than peace on all of our borders," Olmert told the Knesset. But he said, "Israel will not agree to live with rockets fired on its citizens, he added. "Only a nation that can protect its freedom deserves it," he stated.


I have a feeling Olmert's speech may go into the history books.

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it." -- Thomas Paine

I'm not a fan of Olmert, but I agree, it was a great speech. He's slowly gaining my respect. Let's see if he can keep it.
