Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been jumping up and down so vigorously lately about that "kidnapped" soldier that I'm afraid he's gonna follow Ariel Sharon's example and have a stroke too. "If they don't release Cpl. Shalit, I am going to assassinate the Palestinian Prime Minister!" he cried.

Yeah, then what? The Palestinians are gonna retaliate and assassinate you? Sounds childish to me. I got a better idea.

Let's send Cpl. Gilad Shalit to the Hague and try him there. It's a neutral place. He'll get a fair trial. He's a soldier. Was he "only following orders" or not? I want to know. The Palestinians want to know. Maybe Olmert doesn't want to know but, hey, perhaps this will keep him from having a stroke.

And justice will be served.
