Eretz Yisrael Time

It would seem that this government’s policies are a series of random thoughts. It’s not even that someone is looking to create a policy plan, but rather they just blurt out whatever idiocy first enters their brains, and that is what is to be implemented.

Olmert’s latest brain spasm is to introduce foreign Arab troops into the West Bank to “fight terrorism”. It’s not enough that he armed up Hamas in Gaza by giving Fatah weapons, and he followed that up by further arming Fatah for apparently no reason except to give Hamas weapons again. He now has decided that he should let Jordanian troops patrol inside the Land of Israel – after all the model works so well in Lebanon, he spasmed again.

Following in the footsteps of that particular genius was the decision to cut Oleh benefits for Western Olim yesterday.

Personally, I’m of the philosophy that I expect nothing from the Israeli government, except that they will try to take as much as they can from my pocket, so my advice to Olim is very simple.

Don’t plan your Aliyah around any expected government benefits, whether they be living expenses, mortgage assistance, ulpan, lift rights, or anything else.

If you happen to get something, consider yourself lucky, but don’t ever build your financial and aliyah plans around it. That would be a big mistake.

But it goes to show how much brain power these people have.

So do these random thought have meaning? Clearly not, except that someone forgot to take their pills.

the problem is that olmert used to be sharon's trial balloon man. any idea sharon wanted to float he had olmert spit it out. only he forgot he was supposed to pass that job on to someone else.

Olmert runs the country like a toddler telling a story. It is disjointed, and the goal keeps changing, and you start to realize that there is no real goal in mind, other than the continuation of control over the situation.
