Facing a plethora of police investigations, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has finally bowed out.

GAZA, IRAN & OBAMA

'Hamas has no intention of ever compromising with Israel' - that's the assessment of Shabak security chief Yuval Diskin. In his view, Hamas sees it as 'either them or us!' and there was no place for the Jews in what was the sanctified Muslim land of all Palestine. (Hamas, like its Iranian ally, also calls for Israel's annihilation.) Diskin, who had recommended against the current cease-fire, contended that Israel had thrown Hamas a life-line after Israeli counter-strikes had severely damaged the fundamentalist regime in the Gaza Strip.

Israel has gone through two of its most difficult days in recent times. The return of two IDF soldiers in coffins one day and their burial the next , was a time of personal mourning for most Israelis.

IsraCast reports that the debate over releasing living terrorists for dead IDF soldiers will continue, yet Israel's willingness 'to pay the price' is felt by many Israelis as a source of national strength and unity.

Iran, Party Politics and E.U Perfidy

Transport Minister Shaul Mofaz started a firestorm at home and abroad when he declared that Israel would attack Iran if it continued its nuclear weapons program.
