UNDER OLMERT, ISRAEL HAS NO SOVEREIGNTY
by Budy Macy
Last Monday, the day before the Annapolis summit, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert categorically rejected assertions by American Jewish leaders that Jerusalem is not an Israeli issue but "a Jewish one.""Does any Jewish organization have the right to confer upon Israel what it negotiates or not?" Olmert responded sharply. "This question was decided a long time ago. The government of Israel has a sovereign right to negotiate anything on behalf of Israel."
It is ironic that Olmert chose the words, "sovereign right," to describe Israel's relationship with Jews in the Diaspora; especially, when he has assigned that very right -- of making decisions about the future of Israel and Jewish settlement there -- to the U.S . State Department, arguably one of the Jewish People's most bitter enemies since the 1930's, by authorizing the United States to become the sole arbiter of peace agreements between the Israelis and "Palestinian" Arabs.
Apparently, it is treif for Israel toshare her sovereignty with Jews around the world, but it is glatt kosher to hand it over, outright, to her enemy.Unfortunately, this is not the first time Mr. Olmert has abrogated Israel's status as a sovereign nation; he has been doing it continually since taking office last year.
The most vital and basic responsibility of a nation's leader is to ensure the security of its citizens. Despite Israel's vast military resources, Olmert has permitted the Israelis in Sderot and throughout the western Negev to be the target of daily rocket attacks from Gaza. Equally as shocking, he has refused to supply those communities with adequate bomb shelters. There is no excuse for this insidious behavior.And, recently, Olmert has relinquished Israel's sovereignty by taking actions that are responsible for more death and despair. He has released hundreds of terrorists from Israeli prisons; he has vacatedand/or eased checkpoints, allowing terrorists much greater movement inside Israel; and, he has given the "Palestinian" Arabs a huge supply of tanks and weaponry, while beginning, in earnest, to *dis*arm his own citizens.
Mr. Olmert: your actions and inactions contradict every principle inherent in the term, "sovereign." You are kidding no one with your empty words. Your fully *dependent* role as Prime Minister, that of embracing and carrying out the world's "peace" plan for the ethnic cleansing of Jews inIsrael, will permanently eliminate the need for Jewish or Israeli sovereignty over the "Jewish State."

Chronicles I - 16:15-18: "Forever remember His covenant that he commanded forever; That He made with Abraham and swore to Isaac; and confirmed in a decree for Jacob, for Israel, as an eternal covenant; saying to You I will give the Land of Cannan as your alloted heritage"
