Baruch Dayan Emet (finally we know)

Posted by shanamaidel on July 16, 2008

Earlier today, five Hezbollah militants were returned to Lebanon and therefore Hezbollah control.  One of those included Samir Kuntar, who was part of a notorious murder of a family of five.  He was 16 at the time.

In return, Israel now has in their possession the bodies of Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev.

I’d like to remind everyone that Israel went to war over their capture in 2006.

We’ll be commenting more later- but there is great coverage out there right now:

NYT- 1, 2.

The Tribune-1, 2.

    In a game of cards, you can only handle the cards that are dealt to you.

    SO, for starters, let me say I happen to like Olmert. And, I think Bush is really the problem. And, Israel had to find a way to “keep the ball out of the hands of the Saud’s.” (Bush has been promoting a “new Mideast” with the Saud’s gaining territory.)

    Of course, you haven’t read about this! It’s not reported, anywhere.

    Today, the bodies of two soldiers came back. They’ve been dead, probably from the time their jeep got hit by RPG’s. But the “game” was played with the RED CROSS; especially where Goldwasser’s wife was convinced “he was still alive.” And, so the cards began to come out for an “exchange.” Reality remained hidden from view.

    And, time passed.

    If Obama wins in November, by the way, this particular sad game continues. Because it means America has nothing better to do that to apply pressures to Israel.

    Like a deck of cards. And, you can only play the hand that’s dealt.

    Meanwhile, Bush is leaving office without a reputation. “No Legacy For Him” so to speak.

    Are there people wringing their hands? Saying “now Nasrallah has even more reason to kidnap soldiers.” Big difference from “talk” to action. And, the “action” is really poison for Lebanon. Yes. They hate Jews that much! But you don’t need to go there!

    What are the Lebanese going to do? It’s really a freak show, ya know. Sure. They can suit Kundar up and release him on the water, where he can “walk” into Israel. And, attack, again. But I don’t think this is a “realistic play.”

    And, I think Bush, eventually, will be the one who pays the price for what he’s been doing to Israel. What a waste of time these 8 years have been!

    Of course, the Internet seems to be supplanting the old ways of the media.

    And, maybe? Olmert would like the story to look less interesting?

    Nothing gets rid of the media faster than boring stories.
