sharon really had to be ill to have groomed olmert/livni for leadership positions. olmert lacks any security skill, zero, none and is a fish out of water when it comes to running a war. in fact he is like bibi in that he cannot take casualties. livni was different but her obsession with useless resolutions and utterly false assurances from abbas about peace were her undoing. she was tenacious but somewhere along the line, she veered off into fantasy land. Israelis wanted no part of her so quit with the nice eulogies on her departure.
as for Israel katz, the acting foreign minister, Israeli interests come first. of course katz wanted to speak his mind about what happened to Jews in Poland. Think twice before yapping. Poland is now an ally, Israelis can defend themselves, and has the means to deal with any Hitlers appearing on the scene. that is the main thing.
Israel has to hunt down killers of Jews wherever they are. and the world needs to see Israel take action. then it will back off.
