Salute to Israel Parade, Manhattan

Wednesday, May 16th, 2007

Question: In the wake of the Winograd Report on last summer’s Lebanon war, should Prime Minister Olmert resign?

 

 


Yes. He completely mishandled the war. Israel entered the war unprepared and the military was misguided. Olmert also didn’t have a backup plan. Israel should have easily won, but because of him they failed. He put soldiers at unnecessary risk. The war dragged on too long and Israel’s goals were unachieved.


- Ariel Kohane, molecular biologist

 


 


No. Forcing Olmert to resign will not solve anything. In fact, I believe it will cause more chaos and promote instability. I think Israel did a good job in the Lebanon war. If Israel were to elect someone new, people wouldn’t be happy anyway. It seems like Israelis won’t be happy no matter who’s in office.


- Arianne Thaler, student

 

 

 



Yes. He is an incompetent leader. Israeli soldiers were taken captive and I see no sign of their return anytime soon. Israel endured heavy losses for no reason. Olmert is not in touch with the citizens of Israel, and I think the people want him to leave.


- Miriam Aubrach, self-employed


 

 

 

 



No. We cannot find someone else to replace him. People need to understand that there will always be casualties in war no matter who’s in charge – this was evident even in biblical times. I approve of his leadership; he’s familiar with the region and knows the people.
