Olmert Steps Up, and Two Brave Soldiers Fall

He also tells off the UN for condemning Israel:
"The State of Israel defends its residents in the South and, with all due respect, nothing will deter us from continuing to defend our residents. Nobody has the right to preach morality to the State of Israel for taking basic action to defend itself and prevent hundreds of thousands of residents of the South from continuing to be exposed to incessant firing that disrupts their lives."
Of course, while the PM gets to strut his stuff, it's the 20 year olds who are the real heroes. IDF soldiers Doron Assulin, 20, of Beer Sheva, and Eran Dan-Gur, 20, of Jerusalem z"l were killed in the fighting. And the hearts of two more Jewish mothers break into a thousand pieces.
