Tzipi, dandled as a child, on the knee of the Stern Gang terrorist, Menachim Begin, daughter of terrorists - she visits her father's grave every Friday to view the map of Erutz Israel carved on his tombstone - from Syria to the Sinai, would say that ,wouldn't she ?
Apparently Olmerde belled Tony yesterday who he says is a "true friend" of Israel to tell him that if he takes the position of ME "envloy for the Quartet" (non-paying Ho.Ho.Ho.) Israel would cooperate with him "fully." You bet.
Blair, in London, schmoozing with Hollywood starlet Arnie Schwarzenegger could be seen on UK TV meekly accepting the job ...
"I think that anybody who cares about greater peace and stability in the world knows that a lasting and enduring resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian issue is essential," he said. "As I have said on many occasions, I would do whatever I could to help such a resolution come about."Ever since James Wolfensohn quit in May 2006, the quartet have had no public voice .... Israeli officials claim (with a straight face) that Tony would not serve as a negotiator between Israel and the Palestinians, but that his job would focus on "capacity building" in the PA and the development of functional governing institutions. This role would differ from Wolfensohn's, who dealt primarily with economic issues relating to the Gaza Strip following Israel's evacuation.
Whilst Russia will go along with Tony's appointment, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov who is in Israel has called for negotiations between Fatah and Hamas, something Israel opposes for fear that it would lead to another stalemated unity government.
ASked about Russian arms sales to Damascus, Lavrov said the weapons being sold to Syria did not tip the balance of power in the region.
"Whatever we do in the sphere of military technological cooperation, our activities always conform to Russia's international commitments and the export control rules - some of the strictest in the world," he said.
Lavrov arrived yesterday and has had a busy schedule today meeting President Elect Shimon Peres the families of kidnapped reservists Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, to bring some "sign of life" from their captors in Lebanon.
Today he will meet Olmert and then see PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah ... but won't meet any Hamas leadesr - most of them are in prison.
High on his agenda will be the status of Russian nationals, mostly women married to Palestinians, who are stranded inside the Gaza Strip. Russia has already evacuated more than 70 Russian nationals from the area.
Tony, who installed Lord Levy, as his "personal envoy to the ME" ... in an office next to the Foreign Secetary to represent the views of Zion in the heart of the UK Government .. and as a sideline sells honours to fund the last election for New Labour is a puppet of Zion .
Tony who demanded everyone stand aside whilst the IDF bombed the shit out of the Lebanese last summer will resolve nothing .. and that is exactly what Israel wants.
In 5 years or less the West Bank will disappear, and the Gazans will live on a dribble of handouts as prisoners.
Of course Tony will make the perfect ME envoy - he has a
