Is the Noose getting tigher?

PM Olmert seems to be attracting trouble.
  • Besides buying a home so far under the going price, that there had to be something "traif" (forbidden) in the deal.
  • And besides being the "first Israeli Prime Minister to lose a war." And besides the demonstrations demanding he establish a commission to investigate the conduct of the war, or even resign.
  • And besides not having the charisma of Arik Sharon to get away with pushing unpopular policies with the army.

Now, it seems that he's being investigated for cronyism – saying he was responsible for improper appointments as Minister of Industry and Trade during the Sharon regime, the same charge that Tzachi Hanegbi is fighting.

King David wrote that the evil people will be killed by their own swords....
