Olmert's strength

For what is probably the 150th consecutive day, PalArabs fired rockets at Israel from Gaza.

But the good news is....the cease-fire is now in its fourth day!

And don't worry...Olmert has made a show of strength to stop the rockets once and for all:
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Tuesday evening in a meeting with European Union ambassadors in the Finnish ambassador's house that Israel is 'a little disappointed by the continued Qassam firings in the south by the Palestinians.'

Olmert said he hoped that the Palestinians would 'honor their commitment and will stop the fire,' adding that he is certain the European Union 'will appreciate Israel's upholding of the ceasefire.'
Strong words indeed from a strong leader. The terrorists are quaking in the face of such language, and the Israeli public (especially those in Sderot) can feel much safer, knowing that Olmert is certain that Israel's strength in not responding to daily rocket attacks will translate into a smile from some European ambassador in Finland.

You go, girl.
