'Sarkozy and Israel' - what does an Israeli writer make of Europe's intervention in the conflict?

 

AFP - Israel will keep up its offensive in the Gaza Strip despite a UN resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said on Friday.
   
"Israel has never agreed for any outside influence to decide on its right to defend its citizens," a statement from his office quoted him as saying.
   
"The IDF (Israel Defence Forces) will continue to operate in order to defend the citizens of Israel and will carry out the task it was given for the operation.
   
"This morning's rocket fire against the citizens in the south only proves that the UN resolution is not practical and will not be respected by the Palestinian terror organisations."
