Perhaps occupation rots the ethical soul of the occupier as much as it does the occupied?
Israelis vote on new leader
Members of Israel's ruling party has voted for a new leader to replace Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who has promised to resign following a corruption investigation in which he faces indictment. But whether Tzipi Livni or fellow cabinet minister Shaul Mofaz secures the support of a majority of the 74,000 members of the centrist Kadima party, Olmert may stay on as caretaker premier for weeks or months – and Israel's fractious coalition politics could yet mean an early parliamentary election.
I haven’t really blogged much on that corrupt old rascal Ehud Olmert, why kick someone when they are down? but it has made me wonder that if perhaps continuing a brutal 4 decade long multiple human rights abusing occupation over land that is not yours in the face of international law makes you a less ethical person? I mean if you are going to humiliate a people and impose unethical group punishment while stealing land, what’s a little corrupt business dealing between friends huh?
Bye bye Olmert, you corrupt old rascal you.
