Group of Reservists Demand Olmerts Resignation

Published: August 21, 2006
JERUSALEM, Aug. 21 A group of reservist soldiers, angry about the conduct of the war in Lebanon, carried out a protest today demanding the resignations of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Amir Peretz and the army chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz.

One of the marchers, Roni Zwiegenboim of the Alexandroni Brigade, said, Beyond the whole issue of the ammunition, the food and the water that wasnt, the issue was that there was no leadership. He added with disgust, In the end it was just a mess and it all starts at the top.

The reservists, most of whom have gone back to civilian life, say that their training has been inadequate and that they were sent into Lebanon with unclear missions, inadequate supplies, outdated equipment and a lack of basics, like drinking water.

The protest reflects considerable domestic angst about the uncertain outcome of the war, the fragility of a cease-fire, general skepticism about the ability of any United Nations force to control Hezbollah and the failure to reach stated goals, like the release of captured soldiers.

So, are these people anti-Semitic for disagreeing with the policies of their leaders? What would Alan Dershowitz say?
