Palestinian terrorists have reacted to Monday's announcement that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has prostate cancer with great fear and trepidation. Their concern is that Olmert could die before he follows through with plans to surrender Israel's biblical heartland for the creation of yet another Arab Muslim state.
WorldNetDaily reported that its Jerusalem bureau was inundated with calls from terrorist commanders belonging to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement after Israeli media dramatically announced that Olmert would hold a press conference divulging a serious physical illness. The terrorists had hoped the well-connected American news agency would have more details regarding just how serious Olmert's condition was.
In an address that certainly allayed the terrorists fears, Olmert announced that cancerous tumor found in his prostate was very small and that doctors were confident they would successfully remove it and sign a clean bill of health for the prime minister. Olmert insisted that cancer would in no way prevent him from carrying through with his diplomatic plans vis-à-vis the Palestinians. Olmert recently suggested that those plans include the division of Jerusalem.
