This Going Around

I received the above from a group called Israel White Paper who had the above banner professionally designed. They are urgently appealing for all webmasters to place it prominently on the homepage of their websites to combat the effects of the Annapolis Summit, which threaten to make Judea and Samaria "Judenrein."

As I am limited in my computer technical capabilities, this is where it goes.

Olmert is bad alright:-

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said on Monday that the issue of Jerusalem is an Israeli issue and not a "Jewish issue." He made the statement as delegates from the Orthodox Union (OU) and pro-Israel Christians met with American National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley to express opposition to plans by the Olmert administration to divide the Jewish capital with the Palestinian Authority (PA).

almost as bad as Peace Now:-

Israel's left-wing group Peace Now seized on the two anti-Annapolis events, suggesting that Hamas and rightist Zionists share a common intransigence.

"They both use religion to preach against the possibility to reach a peace accord between the parties," Peace Now head Yariv Oppenheimer was quoted as saying by Ynet.

Funny that. If I said Yariv Oppenheimer's wife (and I don't know if he is married and if he is, I surely don't know who she is) is a prostitute because both she and prostitutes engage in sexual activity with men, would that be a nice or correct thing to say?

And talking about politicians, here's how the JTA sees them:-

Israel's top 3 hoping summit can boost careers

For Ehud Olmert, Ehud Barak and Tzipi Livni, the trip to the Annapolis summit not only signals Israel's seriousness about peacemaking but also provides the bitter political rivals an opportunity to jockey for Israel's top job.


More on Jerusalem:

Earlier Monday, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert Monday categorically rejected assertions by American Jewish leaders that Jerusalem is not an Israeli issue but "a Jewish one."

The Jewish leaders are demanding that American Jews should have a say in any discussion about dividing Jerusalem.

Speaking at a news briefing Monday, Olmert said that the Jerusalem issue had "been determined long ago" and that "the government of Israel has a sovereign right to negotiate anything on behalf of Israel."

He said that at this stage, the matter was a theoretical rather than practical one, as the subject of Jerusalem was not yet on the negotiating table.
