The parents of St.-Sgt. Rafenael Muscal, who was killed during the recent war in Lebanon, met with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Wednesday and demanded that he resign.

  • The second Lebanon war: special report "The prime minister told us, 'It was a miracle - we began this war and discovered all of our mistakes. Imagine if we'd found out about them afterwards,'" Moshe Muscal told reporters after the meeting.
  • Outgoing IDF general: Halutz must quit "Imagine that you're told that it was a miracle that your son was killed in order to discover failures!" he continued. "[Olmert] is deaf to the public's feelings." Last week, Moshe Muscal was preeminent last week among a group of hecklers who taunted Olmert at a toast for Kadima activists in advance of the new year, held at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds. Kadima officials later blamed the Likud and the far-Right for the disturbance, during which bereaved parents waved a Golani Brigade flag. Rebecca Anna Stoil contributed to this report.
