Ari Shavit is relatively honest for an Israeli Leftist journalist, but here he is covering up. His kicking of Olmert when he is down is for one reason...and it is not corruption...it is because Olmert gave up his plan to destroy the majority of Jewish communities in Judea/Samaria. The reason all the journalists Shavit listed covered up for Olmert was because they are all hyper-politicized. To them, the ideal Prime Minister is like Sharon (who was also massively corrupt but Shavit conveniently doesn't mention this) or Olmert because they were once part of the "right" but they have now delivered formerly right-wing voters to support the policies of the far Left and because they successfully disenfranchised the pro-YESHA settlement people (like myself) who now have no one to vote for seeing how the Likud is now me-tooing Kadima and Labor by turning its back on the YESHA people. Olmert did Amona and Lebanon in order to look "tough" but he failed so now Shavit curses him. Hypocrisy.
