So it begins

At last, a unified protest in the name of our humanity. This is how an Israeli protest to the situation should be:

http://www.petitiononline.com/olmert/petition.html (up to 1005 signatures in 3 days... just 3,498,996 more to go!)
(a related blog in Hebrew: http://www.tapuz.co.il/blog/userBlog.asp?FolderName=olmert)

The new government disappointed us all, and its beginning to bubble up and out. The Israeli people are finally beginning to truly demand sanity. Let's hope we can save something out of the mess we're heading into, and minimize the damages to come - how soon is too soon? will we make it before Armageddon?

(Someone get that Olmert off Livni's back and let her do what she wants!)

***A protest tent is going up on Tuesday at 16:00, at the Tel Aviv Museum courtyard***

Be careful what you wish for. If this government resigns, the next government might be very right winged.

maybe, maybe not. I'm not that sure actually - in any case, I wouldn't vote for the right... and that's the democratic process.
In any case, the people are disillusioned and dissapointed and the politicians need to understand that. We all do what is within our legal democratic means to influence.

thanks nic... a hostile environment shouldn't be a deterant, on the contrary - and most of the time Beirut Live wasn't that hostile. It's not even that hostile now, just sort of grim, because the big point is keeping up the dialog, and there's no dialog going on anymore, just useless ignorant rants. It gets difficult to keep up especially when I find myself getting caught up in childish pointless arguments I didn't mean to get into at all - but you gotta try and understand EVERYONE on the other side, to know who you're facing.
