Olmert Should Not Resign
Perhaps I'm just very dense, but what exactly has Prime Minister Olmert been proven to have done that justifies all of the current hysteria? He's a hedonist, he took advantage of an older man from Long Island, he took envelopes with cash?
While the testimony by Moshe Talansky raised serious questions warranting further investigation, it hardly provided evidence of serious criminal wrongdoing.
Israelis seem clueless as to why someone like Talansky would help Olmert to the degree he did. They just can't understand the close connection some American Jews feel toward Israel. They assume something sinister must have occurred.
I do not like Olmert, but I hope he does not resign under these circumstances. If he does, it will set a danger precedent.
