"[The resolution] is not a buffet where you pick up one item and leave others," he said.
"So far as we're concerned we entirely accept this, this is a fixed buffet and everything will be implemented including the lifting of the blockade as part of an entire implementation of the different articles.
As the Captain notes:
Olmert may have botched the military mission in Lebanon, but he has done much better in protecting Israeli interests in the post-[UN Security Council Resolution] 1701 environment. The Israeli insistence on full compliance with 1701 will be the only way that either the Israelis realize their goals in the sub-Litani region or expose the global community for the appeasers they obviously are. The blockade must continue until [Lebanese PM and Hizb'Allah sympathizer] Siniora and Annan understand the concept of the "fixed buffet". If they want Israel to abide by 1701, then they cannot expect to get a pass on its full implementation. If they are unable to meet that standard, then neither should have insisted on the cease-fire at all.
The Monk hopes Olmert sticks to that principle, which few Israeli leaders have ever done -- require full compliance by the Arabs before Israel undertakes further "good faith" measures to encourage compliance. If Olmert does, he'd do a great service to his nation.
