Sharon's war?

Patrick of Clarity&Resolve sees war coming. He may well be right. But he's wrong on who should lead the next fight:
Ariel Sharon's war is coming, and it's a shame he's not around to lead it.
Ariel Sharon is in large part responsible for the mess Israel is in today. Please read this post . The real problem is that there seems to be no one left in Israel who will call a spade a spade.
An overwhelming majority of 'Palestinians' voted freely for a group that vows to destroy Israel. Short of an actual, formal declaration of war, a clearer sign of intentions is hard to imagine. Yet Israeli leaders talk of "cutting funds" and "not ruling out talks".

I think that - like Europe - Israel is self-destructing .

All you need to know about "Munich"

Shortly before Munich was released, Steven Spielberg told an interviewer: “I worked very hard so this film was not in any way, shape, or form going to be an attack on Israel.” This is a truly curious formulation. Why should he have had to work “very hard” to avoid turning a film intended to commemorate the murder of Israeli civilians into a film attacking Israel? And if he did work very hard, why is the film he made still so blatant an attack on Israel in virtually every way, shape, and form?
Please read the whole thing. And know that Jews like Spielberg are at least as confused as most other people. Sometimes even more.
