Reservists Call on Labor to Quit

Late Wednesday afternoon, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reservists will demonstrate outside Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak's Tel Aviv home.

At least two reservist organizations, along with members of the Tafnit party, headed by Uzi Dayan, along with other like-minded Israelis will call on Barak to pull the Labor party out of the coalition and bring down the Olmert government.

David Einhorn, who lost his 22-year-old son Yehonatan (Jonathan) in the Second Lebanon War in the summer of 2006, will speak on Israeli television Wednesday night after the Winograd Report's publication.

Einhorn told The Jerusalem Post that while the prime minister's resignation won't bring his son back, Olmert should no longer lead the country.

"Olmert himself is the problem," he said. "How can we send our children to an army headed by a person [Olmert] who is not ready to take responsibility?" he asked.

Einhorn has two sons currently serving in the army and two younger boys still at home.

"When you live in this country, you have to pay a 'tax'. We want one thing -- that 'tax' that we paid won't be in vain," he said.
