Olmert: Start Thinking of the Next Expulsion

Despite a criminal indictment hanging over him, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert continues efforts to exhibit an air of ‘business as usual,’ working to persuade his cabinet to prepare for the next expulsion of Jews from their homes, residents of Yehuda and Shomron who will find themselves on the eastern side of the security barrier.

Olmert rejects the opinion of those claiming he no longer has a mandate from the people, as he conducts intensive negotiations with the PA (Palestinian Authority) in the hope of reaching an agreement before being ousted from office.

Despite condemnatory comments, including staunch opposition to his policies from a number of cabinet ministers, Olmert remains tenacious in his determination to move ahead on the PA and Syrian fronts, hoping to present the international community with an agreement prior to being compelled to leave office.

He did not manage to present his Second Expulsion/Compensation plan to the cabinet on Sunday due to time constraints.
