Several months ago, HAARETZ ran an article concerning Ehud Olmert's former residence on the 29th of November Street in Jerusalem. My recollection is that Olmert sold it to an American who does business in Israel for way over the market value of the house. This and similar issues did not seem to concern the Israeli voters during the recent elections. My conclusion is that Israelis like corrupt politicians.
