Gabrielle Goldwater's open letter to Prime Minister Olmert
To Prime Minister Ehud Olmert firstname.lastname@example.org
Geneva Switzerland August 14th 2006
Dear Mr. Olmert;
It is with the utmost sadness as a Jew and Holocaust Survivor, that today I have to see that You surrendered our Jewish Homeland Security to an organization which in her deepest core, is anti-Semitic, and the most helpful tool serving Islamo Fascism - I talk about the UN and it's leader Sec. Gen. Kofi Annan.
Looking back in history my father would turn in his grave knowing that Jews have NOT stood tall - but caved in and threw our souls and blood onto the soil of the enemy and surrendered to the UN
History of the Golani must ring in your ears now strongly Sir ... as you did disappoint so very many as well as your very own Golani brigade that has given their blood - But for what - The UN - to take over Israel's security - which we very well know they failed each single time.
Whereas the UN miserably failed and lied in the past, serving the Hizbullah already then.
The very UN Who undermined Lebanon's Sovereignty ? Undermined Israel's security ?
Sir; Have you forgotten about the Har Dov Kidnapping - United Nations and Israel in the past ?
The Golani brigade was formed on 28 February, 1948 when the Levanoni brigade deployed on Israel's Lebanese border was divided into two smaller brigades.
Have you forgotten history ?
Golani was stationed in the valleys and hills of the Lower Galilee in northern Israel. Their combatants included members of the Haganah, residents of settlements in the areas of combat, and enlisted soldiers from all over the country.
Prior to the Declaration of Independence, the soldiers of the brigade fought in the areas of Mishmar Ha'emek, Tiberias, Migdal, Zemach and Rosh Pinna.
Their mission was to defend the Upper Galilee and the Galilee valleys. They also participated in the victory at Safed in Operation Yiftach. They captured Arab Sejera, and Bet Shean and its environs.
Upon the foundation of the State, Arab armies invaded the country. In the North, this included the Syrian army, the Iraqi army, the Lebanese army, and Kaukji's irregulars.
The Golani brigade was deployed to face this threat then - They stood tall, although it had severely depleted ranks and was short of arms, They were Israel's pride and Israel's security.
The Golani Brigade succeeded in bringing the Syrian columns of armor and infantry to a halt, sometimes through the use of Molotov cocktails and face-to-face combat.
Mr. Olmert ... you also will remember; Israel undertook the 1956 Sinai Campaign in response to developments in the international arena. It was the Golani's mission to capture the Rafah area, in order to provide Israeli armored forces with a clear road into Egyptian territory.
From 1965, the brigade was integrated into ongoing antiterrorist operations including Shune and Kilat in Jordan, and Hilweh in Lebanon.
The 1973 Yom Kippur War, Just before hostilities broke out, Golani troops were sent to man outposts in the northern sector of the Golan Heights.
The Golani brown berets received recognition as an elite force in the 1976 Entebbe Operation.
Golani units participated in the spectacular rescue of Israeli nationals after their plane had been hijacked to Uganda.
This was not a prize for past achievement but simply acceptance that only the best would go on this mission, and Golani were the best.
Mr. Olmert; as you know yourself - I could carry on about the Golani units for ever ......
This is so sad. One of the main reasons that Israel has survived has been her neighbors' fear of Israel's military. That no longer exists. This has been a major defeat for Israel, one that I think will be felt for a very long time.
I agree, Islamists' fear factor is west's only defense..
That will be Olmert's and his gangs legacy... squandering Israels best asset...
it's once feared deterrence.
I am also getting a little bit peved at the White House bringing Peres over to help prop up that useless Olmert and his gang.
Now makes me wonder if the White House had any input on the sorry execution by Israel.
