Ehud Olmert - A Clear Message

Transcript of 7/31/2006 Speech by Ehud Olmert

Take a moment to read the transcript of a speech by Ehud Olmert. I think it captures well what Israel wants the world to really understand.

Ladies and gentlemen, it's time you understood: the Jewish state will no longer be trampled upon. We will no longer allow anyone to exploit population centers in order to bomb our citizens. No one will be able to hide anymore behind women and children in order to kill our women and children. This anarchy is over. You can condemn us, you can boycott us, you can stop visiting us and, if necessary, we will stop visiting you.
Every place from which a Katyusha is fired into the State of Israel will be a legitimate target for us to attack. This must be stated clearly and publicly, once and for all. You are welcome to judge us, to ostracize us, to boycott us and to vilify us. But to kill us? Absolutely not.

Read the speech - I can't express the points any better than he did.
