A certain person has become embroiled at his 'workplace' in suspicions of criminality, of having accepted envelopes overflowing with dollars about which it is not clear whence they came and where they went.
Olmert has, over the years, earned the reputation of being far more than a lover of the good life, although there is nothing intrinsically wrong with the pursuit of creature comforts.
A Texas cowboy, a lame duck under police caution, and a question for Moshe 'Laundry Man' Talansky.
When Olmert set himself a benchmark for resignation, he deprived the legal system of any excuse for foot-dragging. Mazuz needs to work quickly and hold Olmert to his word. If there are grounds for it, go ahead and indict him. But do it now.
The contrast between our achievements and the Palestinians' misery cries out.
As long as Olmert cooperates in the investigation and there is no indictment, he should be given the benefit of the doubt. Democratic countries don't oust their prime ministers by lynching them.
Only after the gag order on the case is lifted will the public know whether there was any justification for lopping off the prime minister's head in the town square.
This time, the scaremonger is army intelligence chief Major General Amos Yadlin.
There is nothing that could create a more positive change in the Middle East than a peace accord between Israel and Syria.
