The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, To Put The Heat On Iran
Edited on Mon Jan-29-07 10:03 AM by Dover
Okay, this is one weird article. Or at least it seems so to me, maybe because I'm not that familiar with this whole topic, nor do I know anything about this source. So hopefully someone more informed can shed some light on this development. It's certainly the first I've heard of this person or about plans to replace Olmert:

Here's Wikepedia's take on this new replacement for Olmert, Ariel Sharon's protege, Tzipi Livni.

3. Sure seems like Intelligence people are claiming alot of leadership positions
Edited on Mon Jan-29-07 11:22 AM by Dover
Here in the U.S. we have the Bush family cabal. Russia has Putin. And now Israel may get an ex-spy, and who knows who else.

So who do they work for? Certainly not us.

2. CAnada free press is an extremist right-wing website, and not acceptable at this forum.

4. Is the information inaccurate?
Edited on Mon Jan-29-07 11:17 AM by Dover
I went to Wikepedia as a second source and it seems to back up the info in the article.

BTW - it isn't difficult to tell the bias of that first Canadian source. Very pro-Likud apparently.

5. Some of it may be. For example, she may very well have been involved in the illegal kidnapping
of Mordechai Vanunu.

She may also be a popular politician.

It is interesting that according to the wikipedia article she does differentiate between the attacks on soldiers in the IDF by Palestinians, (not terrorism) and attacks on civilians (which is terrorism and condemned by international law) .

6. Well Israel desperately needs a more soft-edged right winger to replace Olmert
Edited on Mon Jan-29-07 11:38 AM by Dover
From what I've read the Likud is not a terribly popular group with many Israelis. So it seems the party is trying to select someone who seems more in the center in power. Very similar to this country it would seem.

I'm guessing, for those here that are unfamiliar with her name (thank you MSM!), that we'll be hearing her name alot more if she does take Olmert's place.

8. If she does replace Olmert, She will continue the terror policies of the current govt.
Edited on Mon Jan-29-07 12:08 PM by Tom Joad
I am certain she desires peace and quiet for Israel, though.

7. another source (Sunday Times- u.k.)
Generals evidence could oust Olmert

(snip)

The foreign minister, Tzipi Livni, 48, is favourite to succeed Olmert as leader of the Kadima party. Olmert has seen his popularity slump in opinion polls, while Livnis has soared.
