An Israel divided, likely frozen until February

There has been much speculation about Israel preemptively attacking Iran to remove any future Iranian ability to make a nuclear bomb.

But IMHO, Israel has been drifting leaderless, since a stroke incapacitated Sharon.

While Olmert assumed the mantle of Israeli leadership thereafter, Olmert has not proved to be very bright. And now a long standing corruption scandal, has killed Olmert forcing him to resign.

Livini has won but cannot form qovernment, forcing her to call for early elections today.

Meanwhile do not look for any Iranian attack on Israel before February/ 09.

But if Netenwayoo wins, any insidious policy may be possible.

No attack against Iran is possible w/o US complicity. I doubt there'll be any after the inauguration.

I can't believe that piece of crap Sharon is still alive. Is he like the Terry Schiavo of Israel? Die already.

Sharon may prove to be another Lenin, forever embalmed for the viewing pleasure of the masses.
