Another wonder in Israel – a leader can resign in disgrace…and we’re still stuck with him. Ehud Olmert has finally fallen under the weight of corruption and agreed to leave office and yet, apparently, Israel will afford him yet another opportunity to speak for our nation (and pay his way to get there).
According to YNET:
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is scheduled to leave for Moscow next week for a meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. The outgoing prime minister’s trip is planned for next Monday and Tuesday, following an invitation extended to Olmert by Medvedev.
The two leaders are expected to discuss a number of issues, including Russia’s arms supply to Syria, Moscow’s objection to additional sanctions on Iran and Israel’s peace process with the Palestinians.
Sources in the Prime Minister’s Office said the meeting had been planned for some time, after several phone conversations between Olmert and Medvedev after the latter took office.
