His children have gone way beyond Peace Now?..two of them support frankly seditious organizations. The Olmerts' daughter Danna is a member of Machsom Watch, a group of Israeli women who monitor checkpoints for human rights abuses and often confront Israeli soldiers on behalf of Palestinians. Their website lists dreadful behavior by Israeli soldiers, often denied by the IDF. Oh, by the way, they don?t comment on the number of terrorist acts that have been aborted by the crossing points. The Olmerts' son Shaul completed his military service, signed a petition of Yesh G'vul, a group of Israeli Defense Force soldiers who refuse to serve in the occupied territories, and now lives in New York. Yesh G?vul?s latest brochure tries to convince high school students not to join the Israeli army and offers a flat $750(US) a month for anyone who is jailed for desertion from the IDF. The Olmerts? son Ariel dodged military service altogether and is studying French literature at the Sorbonne.
