No Little Irony (and a Great Deal of Chutzpah!)

Dani Wassner pointed this out to me, remarking "Unbelievable that he can't see the irony of his words". Here is Olmert referring to Gaydamak whisking 1600 Sdereot residents off to Eilat:-

(Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert this afternoon (Sunday), 19.11.06, convened a discussion with Defense Minister Amir Peretz, Public Security Minister Avi Dichter, Education Minister Yuli Tamir, Interior Minister Ronnie Bar-On, Minister Yitzhak Cohen, Ashkelon Mayor Roni Mehatzri, Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal, the chairmen of the Eshkol, Sdot Hanegev and Ashkelon Coast regional councils, the directors-general of several Government ministries and other senior officials on the continuation of Government assistance to Sderot and other communities near the Gaza Strip.

Prime Minister Olmert made the following remarks at the start of the meeting: “Throughout our history in this Land, during far more difficult times, we have never run away from our homes. We will not lend a hand to hasty actions that may be good for two or three days but which are liable to have destructive long-term effects.

We do not want to take people out of their homes. Localized instances will be dealt with case-by-case but to load people on buses and whisk them off to five-star hotels? In no way is this Government policy.”

If you didn't get the irony, think DISENGAGEMENT, think Lebanon retreat in 2000.

No running away?

No busing people to hotels?

Nothing hasty and not thought out?

Olmert, you are such a p*tz.
