Olmert must resign immediately

The Winograd committee pointed a blaming finger at Israeli primer minister Ehud Olmert. The war was unmanaged. Decision making was not done in an orderly way. Going to war was done with haste. Failure.

Mr. Olmert, hand in your resignation.

The Winograd committee pointed a blaming finger at Israeli primer minister Ehud Olmert. The war was unmanaged. Decision making was not done in an orderly way. Going to war was done with haste. Failure.

Mr. Olmert, Go Home.

The committee, appointed by Olmert, published only an interim report, relating to a period ending on July 17th. On this date, Olmert spoke in the Knesset (Israeli parliament) and was very popular. Also defense minister Amir Peretz and the chief of staff (at the time) Dan Halutz are seriously criticized by the committee.

The public wanted a national inquiry committee with more authority. This committee’s interim report is enough for a resignation. Add 4 cases of corruption allegations, and less than 10% support. What more can we ask for?

Regarding the war, I don’t see any criminal wrong doing by Ehud Olmert. But publicly, this colossal failure doesn’t allow him to continue as our head of state.

Bring on the demonstrations!
