If ‘appeasement’ Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, who embraced ‘LAND FOR NO PEACE’ policies could pave the way for a take-no-prisoners, offer-no-appeasement leader like Benjamin Netanyahu, maybe there’s hope for the rest of us .
U.S. paper Investor’s Business Daily has portrayed the recent Israeli elections as a historic decision that could save the civilized world. “The global stage is set for a confrontation reminiscent of Churchill vs. Hitler and Reagan vs. Gorbachev. How long will Netanyahu tolerate an Iranian nuclear threat before acting?”
The editorial notes that while U.S. President Barack Obama believes Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad can be engaged diplomatically, he just been dealt a pre-emptive strike, courtesy of the Israeli electorate.”
The paper says that Netanyahu “used his first statement as prime minister-presumptive to send a powerful message to both Iran and the Obama administration.”
“To the shock of many, he pointedly refused even to mention the Palestinian peace process, which has been going nowhere of late. Nor was there, again clearly deliberately, any reference made to the so-called two-state solution, which those negotiations had been aiming to find.”
Only one leader fully appreciates the threat. Like Churchill, Benjamin Netanyahu is calling on his political rivals to unite in a broad ‘national unity’ coalition government. “In nullifying the Islamist nuclear threat it should not be only Israel that unites, but all of us,” the paper concludes.
