Benjamin Netanyahu may be the first prominent Israeli politician to open his own blog. The following from INN is a translation of one of his statements there:
Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu had harsh words for the government in a statement Wednesday on his new Hebrew-language blog. The former Prime Minister outlined an itemized response he demands from the Olmert government to the incessant rocket attacks from Gaza against Israel.A spokesperson said he intends to start an English-language blog in the near future. I hope it'll be soon, because then, it'll be easier for English-language readers to read it too. Reliapundit adds: This is good; more people need to hear regularly from the hawks within Israel.
“The rocket fire aimed at Sderot has become routine in the past few weeks since the government agreed to the ceasefire,” wrote Netanyahu. “More than 50 rockets have been launched at Sderot since that imaginary truce and it has been a miracle that no one wounded until now... The expected has finally occurred [on Tuesday night]: people have been hurt.”
