Courage or Faintness? Ehud Olmert Ready To Give Up Israel?

THE PHYSICAL BATTLE...

English Political Leader Courageously Standing Up For A Nation And For Freedom
"We shall not flag nor fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France and on the seas and oceans; we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island whatever the cost may be; we shall fight on beaches, landing grounds, in fields, in streets and on the hills. We shall never surrender and even if, which I do not for the moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, will carry on the struggle until in God's good time the New World with all its power and might, sets forth to the liberation and rescue of the Old."
--- Winston Churchill, June 4, 1940, speech before the House of Commons

Jewish Political Leader ...[Is he ready to give up Israel?] - Ehud Olmert
"We are tired of fighting, we are tired of being courageous, we are tired of winning, we are tired of defeating our enemies, we want to be able to live in an entirely different environment of relations with our enemies."
--- Ehud Olmert, June 9, 2005, speech to Israel Policy Forum in New York.

THE SPIRITUAL BATTLE...

Two Jewish Men of God Courageously Obeying God's Command,
Trusting in God, and Leading the Children of Israel to Freedom!
"Therefore Moses wrote this song the same day, and taught it to the children of Israel. Then He inaugurated Joshua the son of Nun, and said, “Be strong and of good courage; for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land of which I swore to them, and I will be with you.” So it was, when Moses had completed writing the words of this law in a book, when they were finished..."
--- Moses to Joshua [Deuteronomy 31:22-24]

Jewish [Christian] Man of God Courageously Standing up for God's Truth and Grace
and Leading People into Spiritual Freedom Through Jesus Christ!
You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. The hardworking farmer must be first to partake of the crops. Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things. Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel, for which I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the point of chains; but the word of God is not chained. Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. This is a faithful saying:

For if we died with Him,We shall also live with Him.
If we endure, We shall also reign with Him.
If we deny Him,He also will deny us.
If we are faithless, He remains faithful;
He cannot deny Himself.
--- Paul the Aposlte to Timothy - Be Strong in Grace [2 Timothy 2:1-13]

WHERE DO YOU STAND?
And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
Joshua [Joshua 24:15]
