The Zionist Conspiracy
Tuesday, July 15, 2008
1. I still don't think the Talansky matter, as reported up to this point, evidences serious wrongdoing by Olmert. But the latest allegations, that Olmert arranged for multiple charitable entities to be billed for the same trip - and then had an account pocket the overage - clearly involve severe crimes. If the allegations are even partially true, presumably an indictment will be forthcoming soon.
2. When he is released from prison and arrives in Lebanon tomorrow, Samir Kuntar will receive a hero's welcome.
The Middle East conflict really is not very complex, contrary to the pronouncements of some experts, diplomats and politicians.
Israel has its share of extremists, but there is no Israeli version of Kuntar.
Alas, there are Jewish supporters of Kuntar, particularly Neturei Karta, which a few months ago sent a love letter to Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah.
