Olmert Resigns: Don’t Let the Door Hit Ya Where the Good Lord Split Ya

This just in. Ehud Olmert–quite possibly the worst Prime Minister to ever be foisted upon the State of Israel–is resigning. Thank GOD. I only hope someone worse doesn’t take his place. Olmert is a full-blown dhimmi and spineless and a coward and not a good Jew. The Israelis right now simply cannot handle another PM of Olmert’s sub-standard kind. Ideally I would love to see another Golda Meir for Israel but I’ll settle for a Benjamin Netanyahu type.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
they that love thee shall prosper.
Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will say now,
peace be within thee.
For the sake of the House of the Lord our God I will seek thy good. “

                              — Psalm 122

Israeli PM to resign, won’t run in party primary
JERUSALEM – Facing burgeoning corruption allegations and plummeting popularity, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Wednesday he will resign in September, throwing Israel into political turmoil and raising doubts about prospects for peace with the Palestinians and Syria.

Olmert said he would not run in his party’s primary election Sept. 17 and would step down afterward to allow his successor to form a government. But because of Israel’s political system, he could serve until well into next year.

His decision will end a long public career that has been clouded by allegations of corruption that have battered him in recent months.

Olmert’s popularity dropped below 20 percent at one point after his bloody but inconclusive war in Lebanon in 2006.

Political analysts had been predicting his resignation for weeks as details of the latest allegations against him dominated the news.

The most damaging inquiry focuses on Morris Talansky, a 76-year-old American Jewish businessman who testified that he handed envelopes stuffed with tens of thousands of dollars to Olmert before he became prime minister, in part financing a luxurious lifestyle of expensive hotels and fat cigars.

Talansky gave lengthy public testimony for days in a Jerusalem courtroom, defending his allegations under cross-examination by Olmert’s attorneys — although Olmert has never been formally charged with a crime.

The latest allegation was that Olmert double and triple-billed trips abroad to Jewish institutions, pocketing the difference or financing trips for relatives. Other allegations include a shady real estate deal and questionable political appointments — all before he became premier.

Olmert’s brief address from his official Jerusalem residence included harsh criticism of the police investigations. He said he was choosing the public good over personal justice. Although he has consistently denied wrongdoing, he had pledged to resign if indicted.

“I was forced to defend myself against relentless attacks from self-appointed ‘fighters for justice’ who sought to depose me from my position, when the ends sanctified all the means,” Olmert said, appearing angry and reading from a text.

He did not answer questions from reporters gathered in his courtyard.

Of course he didn’t. The guilty and the treacherous and the weak-willed and the soft of spirit don’t like answering questions.
