The "Tired" Man is Trying to Bring Us Down

Olmert: No such thing as 'Greater Israel' anymore
Cabinet discusses bill offering NIS 1.1m to settlers willing to voluntarily relocate

'We won't allow settler pogroms against non-Jews'
Olmert speaks out against settler rampage after Palestinian attacked young boy

Olmert endangers the existence of the State of Israel. It goes on and on. His talk of resigning is just talk, even though the Kadima Primaries are this week. He's, technically, a lame duck Prime Minister, but he's desperately signing and agreeing to anything and everything, without caring about the repercussions. What drives him?

Jerusalem is suffering from the building of the light rail system, which could have been a good solution to its transportation problems. The problem is that the contractors and supervisors are incompetent, which is causing major and expensive problems. Who planned it? Who chose the contractors? Olmert, when he was mayor. Now, he's conveniently out of the municipality, just like he'll be far gone, when Israel suffers from the results of today's agreements and statements.

Ok, I hope people take a look.

Olmert: tired of defeating Arabs, but plenty enthusiastic about defeating Jews.

Although I wouldn't blame him for the light rail - it is hardly more incompetently run than any other infrastructure project in Israel.

Well, a, I don't think he can ever get "tired of defeating Jews," since he's going to lose!

re: the light rail
I'm sure the tenders were tainted.

As much as irrational hatred of Olmert is popular, keep in mind that Olmert was trying to counter-balance EXPANSION of Jewish territory with the SURVIVAL of the Jewish state.

You're in a situation where they're mutually exclusive. What do you do?
