Olmert: Only an idiot prime minister would not make peace with Palestinians
Jerusalem Post ^ | 6/1/14 | Noa Amouyel

Posted on 01/06/2014 12:36:36 PM PST by Eleutheria5

Former prime minister Ehud Olmert on Monday insinuated that his successor Binyamin Netanyahu was an “idiot” and that his predecessor Ariel Sharon was revered only after lapsing into a coma.

“In times of peace, even an idiotic prime minister can come out looking good,” he said during a lecture at Hebrew University on Monday.

“Of course, an idiot prime minister cannot make peace, and if he makes peace he’s not an idiot,” after the audience laughed at his veiled tongue-in-cheek reference to Netanayhu, Olmert was quick to backtrack and added, “I mean that only generally, of course. Really!”

The Prime Minister's office declined to respond to Olmert's comments.

Prime Minister Netanyahu should send him to the South Sudan, DPRK or Zimbabwe as an efficiency expert or governmental advisor.

Only an idiot like Olmert would make a deal with Death and Hell and the Antichrist (whomever that may be, that confirms the covenant for one week of years).

Making peace or not making peace is not the issue. Only an idiot would make a peace with a people that won’t acknowledge Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.

Olmert’s motivations may be many...but Bibi is not an idiot, he is a wise man.

Making peace with the Palis would be fine - if the Palis would hold up their side of the bargain. But we have historical proof that they won’t. Their stated goal is the destruction of Israel.

That means the only rational response to the Palis to annihilate them.

“Only an idiot would think falsestinians exist.”

If the whole liberal world says you exist and you are what you claim to be it creates a legitimacy that is real in effect if not in “fact.” It is this, their backing by people who can hurt Israel economically, that makes them so dangerous. Israel has lost the propaganda war and with the weight of the MSM, governments, and Arab money against them, it would be impossible to recoup.

The world will, after a few million casualties in America, France, England, and Germany, come over to the right side. But it may be too late by then for Israel. Only time will tell.

it will take the good Christians of the world to protect the Jews, about half of whom suffer from JSS (for which it seems there is no cure)

Christians are afflicted with CSS and also Ostrichitis. Those that know what’s going on throughout Africa and the East don’t care that Christians are being murdered. The rest don’t want to know. Jews, by contrast, know what’s going on in Israel, but think that making piece will stop it, and think that those who refuse to make piece deserve to be killed for failing to be stupid.

Except that they are NOT what they claim to be, propaganda or no. And they never will be. They can’t even make peace with each other.

Yes, Christians really have let down the Christians of Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, etc. Muslims slaughter Christians and the world’s Christian countries just stand by (or, as with Obama, send in arms and money to the Muslim murderers).

So logically, Isr cannot expect much help from the world’s Christians. But paradoxically there are still some good Christians who do care and who are not asleep. Whether they can exert sufficient influence to change the Satanic course of the Obana foreign policy.. remains to be seen. Many of them are already very much challenged, busy, burdened fighting Obama’s Satanic domestic, economic and social policies... but we will see.

Meanwhile, if there is ANY way to get the Jewish-Suicide-Syndrome Israelis out of Isr’s government.... retire them, send them to pound sand in Negev, send them to guard the northern border, anything? Having such suicidal idiots spouting off their nonsense only helps Obama and Kerry destroy Israel ...

Only an idiot would think you can make peace with Palestinians by signing some papers and a treaty. Palestinians will always be trying to destroy Israel, the best you can do is keep them at bay. This becomes difficult if you give up strategic land such as Golan Heights and parts of the West Bank

Ehud Oliver, you blithering (Pro-Arab) moron...
The Pali-Arabs; don't want "peace"..they only want Israeli blood.
bwt..there are no Palestinians, only Pali-Arabs..Trans-Jordanians
they lost the wars of '48, '56, '67, '73 & '82. They (the Israeli) won the
wars, fair & square. They (the Pali-Arabs), abandoned their lands &
possessions @ the behest of their Arab brothers in the war of '48
(Arabs promised to wipe them out), they were Allies w/the Arab
Governments.

Christians in America really are helping Israel right now, simply by making it too politically risky for the politicians to screw us outright. If it were up to the American Jews, they would do it and get their blessings. Is this JSS? Either Jewish Stupidity Syndrom or Jewish Suicide Syndrome. Either way, the acronym fits.

we are trying to get Kerry called home PRONTO, for starters.

he has embarrassed America a-plenty already with his horrible proposals and statements in the middle east

as regards selling out Israel but also as regards re-installing the Muslim Brother terrorist gang in Egypt and backing the Islamonazi murderers in their attempted takeover (and slaughter of Christians) in Syria, etc

Of course, Kerry IS only “following orders” — but having him back at home may provide the good peoples of the middle east a little more breathing room, at least, and maybe he won’t be so prone to make embarrassing or stupid statements quite so often if he is not deployed overseas? just hoping...

you are unfortunately correct.
right now he feels obligated to make another statement every time he goes into a meeting or comes out of a meeting or goes to the airport or comes from the airport..... anywhere he travels.... so it is one long series of stupid and stupider statements....

if he comes home, he may not feel quite as much pressure to talk quite so much

this would be far better, less embarrassing for America and cause less trouble overseas

Olmert was and is a full fledged sell-out and traitor to the people of Israel. He did everything in his power to weaken the position of his own nation by agreeing to every hair-brained, pro-Islamic scheme to come down the pike.

Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. Neville Chamberlain was not involved in any crooked land deals, and after his efforts to get ‘peace in our time’ backfired, he became an advocate for all-out war with Germany. Olmert, on the other hand, keeps advocating the same thing each time and expecting a different result, and is part of the reason that Israel is numbered 36 in Transparency International’s corrupt country list, instead of 34; 1 point lost because he’s a crook and another one lost because he got away with it.

We are tired of fighting; we are tired of being courageous; we are tired of winning; we are tired of defeating our enemies.

— Olmert at the 2005 Israel Policy Forum

There will be no peace if a significant part of Jerusalem is not the capital of the Palestinian state.

— Olmert, March 2009
This is the same fellow that was adamant that Jerusalem must never be divided when he was mayor of that city, too. He also got Ehud Barak elected over Shimon Peres back in 1997 with the slogan, “Peres will divide Jerusalem”. When did he sell out?
