    1- Olmert's children are adults now, and where they reside is their own business. Ehud Olmert himself lived all his life in Israel, and that is what counts. 2- There are around half a million Israelis residing in the United States for various reasons such as study, career, easier life, temporary assignements, etc. Mr. Netanyau was one of them. 3- Many of those Israelis will never return home, partly because they are by now used to a different life, partly because they are apprehensive of the Israeli bureaucracy (plenty of stories about complete lack of interest and poor handling from the "Ministry of Absorption"). It is a pity, as they represent an educated and experienced work force. 4- All the above has absolutely nothing to do with what is on the table in the upcoming elections. Intelligent voters will perceive this smear campaign as a cheap trick and dislike Netanyau even more.
