    This is Nasrallahs chance to make good with the people of Israel and to become a folk hero there too. If Nazrallah insists upon Olmert being included in any swap deal, according to opinion polls, 95% of Israelis would grab at the opportunity of getting rid of their leader.Olmert is but a political corpse being kept alive artificially by people who risk losing their places in the pyramid of power.
