He has many great qualities, and he did a great job as Prime Minister. But it is of course very good for Israel, for all of us, that every detail of this affair is examined. It might turn out that he did some questionable things, but that he didn´t commit crimes. It could be that this is a subtle mess that is about quality of government, but not crimes. It is possible that he crossed many red lines several times and in fact commited crimes. We have independent courts in this country, and in general an excellent legal system. But - until proven guilty, I support Ehud Olmert.
