Ehud Olmert

Ehud Olmert was the Prime Minister of Israel and a thief. Now he is a thief, a convicted thief to boot. He got off lightly in April 2011. The police investigated five major cases against him. He beat some raps due to the statute of limitations. But he has been charged with fraud and they have got him on the run. He may well be the first prime minister of Israel who is not a murderer which is little enough to his credit. He has started two pointless wars, killed thousands and robbed Holocaust® survivors which means that he is a democratic thief; he will rob anyone. He might also be the first Israeli prime minister to go to prison. He works with Benny Steinmetz, a rich Jew in diamonds.

Ehud Olmert Wanted For War Crimes
QUOTE
On 12 July 2006, the suspect ordered the bombing of cities and villages in Lebanon. The 34-day bombing of residential areas broke international law. The aerial bombing and land assault ordered by the suspect, killed approximately 1,200 people and injured about 4,400. During the attack, the suspect ordered several thousand cluster bombs to be dropped near residential areas in Lebanon, something forbidden under international conventions. In total, about a million small bombs were dropped, which led to the post war deaths of 30 people and the injury of 215, including 90 children.

In the summer of 2007, the suspect ordered the blockade of 1.5 million people in Gaza, preventing them from receiving adequate food, water and electricity supplies and medication – all explicitly prohibited under international law. In December 2008, the suspect ordered an air, land and sea attack on the residents of Gaza, causing the rapid destruction of residential areas and the deaths of 1,300 people - hundreds of them children. On 10 December 2008, Lebanese lawyers submitted a formal complaint to the International Criminal Court, The Hague, Netherlands, against the suspect and others, on suspicion of war crimes and crimes against humanity for his part in the siege of Gaza. In March 2009, the suspect will lose his diplomatic immunity.

Olmert's Crimes Worse Than Thought
QUOTE
Wait a minute. Crimes so bad that the government prosecutors can’t find a way out of them? Impossible!
Don’t worry. Like a snake in a noose, Olmert will slip free to destroy Israel once more.
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/123981 
by Ezra HaLevi
(IsraelNN.com) Investigative journalist Yoav Yitzchak reports that the ongoing investigation against Prime Minister Olmert in the Bank Leumi Affair is yielding damning evidence of crimes punishable by active jail time. The report contradicts recent assertions by PM Olmert's associates that he is unlikely to be charged with crimes. Yitzchak, Israel’s most prominent investigative journalist, says police investigators have unearthed evidence implicating Olmert not only in fraud, as was originally publicized, but also "fraud in aggravated circumstances," which carries an additional two year jail sentence. Yitzchak said that police sources had revealed to him that Olmert was questioned on additional charges of fraud and breach of trust.

If Olmert is convicted, Yitzchak says, he could serve from three to five years of active jail time for each of his crimes. Yitzchak quoted the sources as saying that police “without question” have enough evidence to indict Olmert on both charges.

Israel has confirmed sending thousands of army reservists into Gaza, raising concerns that a deadly "third stage" of its offensive - targeting urban centres - could soon begin.

Israel Accused Of Gaza Genocide - Israel Whines About Holocaust® [ 14 January 2009 ]

The number of victims in Gaza is increasing by the day... The situation is untenable. It's genocide," d'Escoto said at the UN in New York.

US Claims That Israel Does Not Control Bush  [ 14 January 2009 ]
QUOTE
The US has denied that a telephone call made by Ehud Olmert, the Israeli prime minister, to George Bush, the US president, led to the US abstaining in a UN vote on the Gaza war last week. The Israeli prime minister said on Monday that he demanded to talk to Bush last Thursday, minutes before a vote in the UN Security Council on a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.......... Bush, who Olmert said was taken off a stage in Philadelphia where he was making a speech, said he was not informed on the resolution and was "not familiar with the phrasing".

"I'm familiar with it. You can't vote in favour." Olmert claimed telling the US president.

"He [Bush] gave an order to the secretary of state and she did not vote in favour of it, a resolution she cooked up, phrased, organised and manoeuvred for," Olmert said.

Venezuela Breaks Off Israel Ties After Jews Murder 1,000 [  15 January 2009 ]

Venezuela has joined Bolivia in severing ties with Israel in protest against its war in the Gaza Strip, which has left more than 1,000 Palestinians dead. "Venezuela ... has decided to break off diplomatic relations with the state of Israel given the inhumane persecution of the Palestinian people," the foreign ministry said in a statement on Wednesday. Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan president, decided to expel Israel's ambassador and embassy staff last week because of the offensive, calling the Israeli onslaught a "holocaust". Evo Morales, the president of Bolivia and a close ally of Chavez, said that he would seek to get senior Israeli officials, including Ehud Olmert, the Israeli prime minister, charged with "genocide" in the International Criminal Court.

Gaza Massacre Is A Vote Winner In Israel [  15 January 2009 ]
QUOTE
Almost three weeks after the beginning of Operation Cast Lead and less than a month before the Knesset elections, a Haaretz-Dialog poll shows widespread public support for the Gaza campaign. Less than 10 percent see the operation as a "failure."....

Despite pictures from Gaza depicting massive destruction and a large number of wounded and killed, including women and children, 82 percent of the public believe that Israel has not "gone too far" with the military force it is exercising against Hamas. This means that almost all Israel's Jewish citizens warmly support the operation, its goals, firepower and management.

Jewish Tail Wags American Dog [ 18 January 2009 ]
QUOTE
Ehud Olmert really doesn’t care any more. He is serving out his time as Israel’s prime minister until next month’s election, but then he will spend a long time fighting the corruption charges that forced him to resign, and he won’t be going back into politics afterward even if he wins. Not after two bloody, futile wars in three years, he won’t. So he’s very angry, and he tells it like it is. On January 8, he had a problem. The U.S. secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, was going to vote for a United Nations Security Council resolution that called on both Israel and its Palestinian enemy, Hamas, to accept a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. Indeed, she had been largely responsible for writing it, and Olmert was furious. He wanted more time to hammer Hamas, so he phoned up George W. Bush and yanked on his choke-chain.............

Senior Israeli politicians are usually much more circumspect about the nature of their relationship with the occupants of the White House, and Olmert’s colleagues were appalled that his anger had led him to speak so plainly. It is one thing to talk to the president of the United States that way. It is quite another thing to reveal to the American public that Israeli leaders talk to U.S. presidents in that tone of voice.....

These discussions usually end up being about the alleged power of the “Jewish lobby” over U.S. foreign policy, and in Congress it is obviously huge. The vast majority of the members of Congress will always vote for bills that involve aid or support for Israel, in many cases because they know what will happen at the next election to those who don’t. But the key foreign policy decisions are made in the White House, not in Congress, and the presidency is different.

The president is controlled direct, by blackmail, brainwashing or whatever. Bush is a Jewish puppet. Obama dances to their tune just as Bush but they are not usually fool enough to say these things publicly.

Israeli Investigators stated Monday that they have sufficient evidence to indict the former Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, for breach of trust during his term as the Industry Minister. Israeli Ynet news reported that the former director of the ministry, ex-cabinet secretary, Oved Yehezkel, could also face criminal charges. This marks the fourth criminal indictment against Olmert, who was previously charged with corruption and cronyism for allegedly receiving bribes, engaging in breach of public trust, and being part of a money laundering scheme. Now, the former Prime Minister may be charged with another round of cronyism, after an investigation by the State Comptroller’s office found that 260 political appointments made by Olmert when he was Industry and Trade Minister may have been based on special favours and cronyism. The review of Olmert’s behaviour in the Ministry began in 2007, after an initial review found that a number of Cabinet-level positions had been appointed by Olmert based on cronyism.

Third corruption case against Olmert closed Attorney General Menachem Mazuz on Monday decided to close a corruption case against former prime minister Ehud Olmert, citing lack of evidence over allegations he accepted some NIS 1 million bribes............ According to the government watchdog, Olmert had accepted the money from a member of the Sanz community, Moshe Reich. Mazuz informed the movement in a letter on Monday that there was not sufficient evidence to continue the investigation. Late last month, Mazuz decided to close another corruption case against Olmert over the purchase of a home on Cremieux Street in Jerusalem. In that case as well, Mazuz cited lack of evidence. The case was built around the suspicion that Olmert received a $500,000 kickback in the form of a significant discount on a Jerusalem home, in return for securing special building permits for the company that renovated the house, significantly increasing the profits from the project. The Laniado affair was the third case against Olmert to be dropped. The first that was closed was the Bank Leumi affair, in which Olmert was suspected of trying to help his friend, Australian real-estate magnate Frank Lowy, buy the controlling shares in Bank Leumi..........

At the start of his testimony Messer stressed that he did not have a close relationship with Olmert, despite common assumptions, and that Olmert never visited him at his home or joined him for familial celebrations. "We sometimes watched soccer matches together," he said. Messer was later questioned with regards to a "secret fund" he allegedly managed for Olmert between 2003 and 2006, in which the cash payments from Talansky were deposited and said that the largest sum of cash he held for Olmert was "$300,000, maybe more.".................

When asked why Olmert did not keep the money in a bank account that gains interest Messer said "You don’t keep cash in the closet you keep it in a safe," adding that there was an understanding between them that the money would remain in cash......... Messer will continue to testify over the next few weeks, and is also expected to testify against Olmert in what is known as the Investment Center affair, in which Olmert allegedly granted favors illegally to Messer, his former law firm partner.

Israeli Prime Minister To Be Charged With More Corruption, Fraud Etcetera [ 14 March 2011 ]
QUOTE
The Tel Aviv District's prosecution announced Monday that it intended to indict former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert along with other suspects in the Holyland affair for corruption, bribery, and other charges. The prosecution accepted the police recommendation to put the suspects on trial due to their participation in the alleged bribery scheme involving the "Holyland" residence project in Jerusalem, which was promoted during Olmert's decade-long tenure as the city's mayor.............

Olmert is suspected of having accepted bribes worth more than NIS 1 million during his term as mayor of Jerusalem and later, while serving as trade minister, in exchange for advancing the interests of real estate developers involved in the Holyland project, as well as other real estate developments. The bribes were allegedly funneled through Olmert's office manager Shula Zaken.

Prosecutors in the corruption case of former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert requested that one of their witnesses be considered a hostile witness after he verbally attacked another prosecution witness in his testimony. Uri Messer, a confidante of Olmert, disparaged Shmuel Mordechai, the former head of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor's Investment Center. Messer contended on the witness stand that Mordechai wanted to exact revenge on Olmert for having fired him, and that was the reason that he was testifying against Olmert.

Messer is testifying against Olmert in what is known as the Investment Center affair, in which Olmert allegedly granted favors illegally to Messer, his former law firm partner.

UN Gun Grab Is A Major Power Play To Impose Dictatorship
QUOTE
The UN Arms Trade Treaty that has been identified by observers as a flagrant threat to the Second Amendment and which Barack Obama is determined to sign has its roots in a 1961 State Department memorandum which explains how the United Nations will oversee “complete disarmament” of the American people under the ruse of preventing war. The UN Arms Treaty has caused so much controversy because it outlines a plan to target “all types of conventional weapons, notably including small arms and light weapons,” according to Forbes’ Larry Bell.

Using the rhetoric of the threat post by terrorists, insurgents and “international crime syndicates,” the UN is busy trying to imply that all weapons are somehow involved in illegal activity on a global scale and should therefore be controlled and regulated by a global authority.........

While the document initially focuses on scrapping nuclear weapons, it later makes it clear that the only groups allowed to own weapons of any kind would be governing authorities, “for the purpose of maintaining internal order,” and the UN “peacekeeping” force itself, which would require “agreed manpower.”

Ehud Olmert is an Israeli politician who has served as Israel's Prime Minister, Deputy Premier, Finance Minister and Mayor of Jerusalem........

Olmert’s remaining time in office was marred by investigations into corruption charges from earlier in his career. The investigations and allegations of corruption led Olmert to announce his resignation in July 2008 as leader of the Kadima Party, and, following a leadership contest, the party leadership was transferred to Foreign Minster Tzipi Livni. Olmert’s term as prime minister officially ended after Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu managed to form a coalition government in March 2009, following a general election.

In August 2009, Olmert became the first former Israeli prime minister to face criminal proceedings, after he was indicted on three corruption charges relating to his time as a cabinet minister and mayor of Jerusalem.

From Israeli Prime Minister Is Just One Thief Among Many

Olmert's network of cronyism goes beyond Holyland

The former PM's conviction for bribery last week opened a Pandora's box of connections he has had with major players in Israel's business sector.

By and | Apr. 8, 2014 | 4:30 AM

In 2002, at the height of one of the most serious economic crises in Israeli history, the governor of the Bank of Israel, David Klein, managed to create anxiety in the country's banking system. A carelessly phrased answer to a reporter sent a warning that an Israeli bank might collapse. Klein refused to say which one, but in the markets they guessed that the bank most in danger was Israel Discount Bank – and its shares plummeted.

Klein regrets that slip even today, since his response could very well have caused customers to rush out and withdraw their funds, causing a run on the bank that may have caused it to fold – and possibly even leading to a system-wide collapse of other banks, financial institutions and companies. There could have been a sort of self-fulfilling prophesy.

That never happened: Discount did not fall, and the public calmed down. But such a statement by a senior economic and government figure should be uttered only the most exceptional circumstances.

The whole incident did not, however, bother then Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor Ehud Olmert. Indeed, a year later told Haaretz: “If the deal between the Dankner family’s Israel Salt Industries Ltd. and the Israel Lands Administration is not approved by the ILA council [which determines policy] – Bank Leumi could collapse.”

Klein said what he did because the enormous exposure of Discount's billions of shekels loans to large corporations could bring the bank down. In Olmert’s case, his statement was completely baseless. Leumi had a 1.4 billion shekels ($400,000,000) exposure to the deal. Even if it would have lost that entire amount, it was only 10% of the bank’s equity at the time. Serious damage but not enough to bring about its demise.

But that wasn’t the point. It is more relevant to ask why the industry and trade minister was interested in the first place in the Dankners' property, and what the connection was between it and one of Israel’s two largest banks. We must also remember that at the time Olmert served as chairman of the ILA’s council. What was at issue was a deal in which the ILA was asking for approval for a rezoning of the Dankners' property in Eilat in the south and Atlit near Haifa, from agricultural to residential land.

For the Dankners, the significance of the ILA's approval was enormous, almost existential. Back then they already partially controlled Bank Hapoalim, but they had achieved that by means of an enormous amount of credit – 1.4 billion shekels they received from Bank Leumi. An economic crisis at the time sent shares in Hapoalim plunging, so the value of the bank shares the Dankners owned dropped below the 1.4-billion shekels they owed; they feared Leumi would demand immediate repayment.

This is where guarantees for the loan entered the picture – the very same lands owned by the Salt Industries then under discussion at the ILA. Its approval for the rezoning would allow the Dankners to increase the value of their land, on paper, to 1 billion shekels.

At an ILA council meeting, Olmert told the members he was speaking from his heart – and asked them to green light the deal.

This was not the only time he acted in such a strange, or even suspicious, fashion. He went as far as saying certain things that could have endangered the Israeli economy.

Olmert seems to have used any tactics available back then to serve the Dankners' interests. He was never charged with anything in the Salt Industries affair, but the story does raise questions about his involvement in the deal – which was finally revoked not long ago, and as a result of which Dan Dankner, former chairman of Bank Hapoalim, was convicted of giving a 1.3-million shekel bribe to Meir Rabin, the brother-in-law of ILA head Yaakov Efrati; Efrati himself, however, was acquitted of taking a bribe on the grounds of reasonable doubt.

Bank Leumi sale tender

Today we can look back and examine with heightened concern the other scandals in which former Prime Minister Olmert was involved, and not just the most famous of them – i.e., the Talansky cash-envelope and Investment Center affairs.

One of the lesser-known affairs happened in 2005 when Olmert was finance minister in Ariel Sharon’s cabinet. The police investigated a suspicion then that Olmert acted to sell the state’s shares in Bank Leumi to two Jewish businessmen who were close to him: Frank Lowy and S. Daniel Abraham, both from Australia, who headed a group of investors bidding in the tender. And if all that were not enough, the lawyer representing the group was attorney Yosef Gross, whose daughter is married to Olmert’s son.

Olmert never informed the officials in his ministry of these connections with the group of investors.

The affair never made it to court, as State Prosecutor Moshe Lador decided to close the case. Lador said the police never found an adequate basis to prove that Olmert influenced the tender intentionally in favor of his friends. While the High Court of Justice rejected a petition asking them to order Lador to indict Olmert, the bench did criticize Olmert’s actions.

“The picture painted by the evidence is worrying. Olmert’s actions are not proper, and there is more than just bad taste in evidence here,” the justices wrote.

A few years later it turned out that the very same Abraham – on whose behalf Olmert was suspected of, but never charged with, fixing the Leumi tender – had helped pay legal fees for Olmert's longtime bureau chief Shula Zaken’s defense; she has also been convicted in the Holyland case.

One person who never stopped warning about the tender being fixed was Yaron Zelekha, then accountant general in the Finance Ministry, who also served as a key witness. Zelekha was constantly accused of seeing shadows everywhere, but did not hesitate to come out against his boss.

Zelekha may be quite well-off today and sometimes he even advises tycoons, but unlike many of his colleagues from the treasury, he was never sought after by the same tycoons to run their businesses – and never to serve as a board chairman. No one wants a “troublemaker,” and appointment of someone like Zelekha could be seen as a message to senior officials that even if they don’t do what the tycoons want – they can still find a good job. That is a message that could damage the entire financial system of the country.

In his book Zelekha later wrote that he participated in a number of meetings – along with other senior finance officials, including governor of the Bank of Israel Stanley Fischer – where Olmert tried to fix the Leumi tender in favor of his friends.

“At one meeting, two weeks after the final date to submit bids for the tender, Olmert sat with us at a meeting in which he read from a letter that described changes in the tender that would benefit Lowy’s group. This, of course, was something he was forbidden to do, since it violated the conditions that had been set forth.

“The letter was at some stage in Fischer’s hands. I grabbed it from him and saw it was actually a fax that Olmert had received from Lowy’s group. Afterward, Fischer told the police he didn’t remember any such thing. Like three monkeys, everyone sat there: No one understood but they were supporting the changes Olmert wanted to make, even though they knew that at the time of the announcement of the winner of the tender, Olmert was planning on traveling with his wife Aliza to Australia to see Lowy. (A trip that did not come about, in the end.) Later on the police didn’t remember or understand, and were surprised by the investigation itself,” noted Zelekha.

When asked about this a few days ago, Fischer declined to comment.

Akirov blames the press

Not many people remember, but one of the members of Frank Lowy’s group of investors for a short time – not until the end – was another friend of Olmert’s: businessman Alfred Akirov. He also wanted to buy control of Leumi along with them. And Akirov, too, as we have just learned in recent days, could find himself entangled in the next phase of the Holyland case.

Akirov will be invited to answer the police’s questions in the next few days, to clarify whether he actually paid Zaken to "keep quiet" during the Holyland trial by hiring her at his real estate development company Alrov, as an adviser on Jerusalem hotel marketing events and in the field of incoming tourism.

Akirov claims that he paid Zaken 12,000 shekels a month in wages, and she gave receipts as a self-employed contractor.

As is his wont, Akirov blamed the press for dragging him into the limelight now: “I assume that sticking my name in the Olmert affair was intended to satisfy the press, and nothing more,” he declared.

Today, Akirov owns 3.1% of the share of Bank Leumi, even though his main business interest lies in real estate and the hotel industry. The shares he owns give him some influence over the bank – for example, as concerns the choice of the chairman and the wages of senior executives. As opposed to state officials, Akirov voted in favor of the compensation packages for the bank’s CEO Rakefet Russak-Aminoah and chairman David Brodet.

Occasionally Akirov can be seen on television, always blames the media for fanning the flames or Knesset members for incitement against the rich. You can find in Akirov’s offices – as in those of public relations guru Rani Rahav of prominent attorney Ram Caspi – paintings done by Olmert’s wife Aliza, which cost thousands of dollars.

The Alrov real estate firm has built, among other things, the Mamilla project in Jerusalem just outside the Old City walls, as well as the famous Akirov Towers in Tel Aviv, a well-know status symbol. Olmert was responsible for years, as mayor of the Jerusalem and later as the chairman of the ILA, for the advancement of the Mamilla project.

Livnats behind the scenes

Nochi Dankner naturally drew the fire when the IDB conglomerate collapsed recently. His silent partners in controlling IDB, who also were company directors, were members of the Livnat family ־ specifically, the Avraham Livnat Group. They remained behind the scenes and came out of the debacle almost unharmed. Even today, after losing control of IDB, the Livnat family controls one of the largest and most influential companies in Israel.

The family deals not only in haulage and logistics, its traditional business fields, but also owns quarries and an explosives factory through Taavura Holdings Ltd. Taavura has a monopoly in the area of transporting cement, and also controls the publicly owned Maman, which operates cargo terminals at the airports. The firm also operates buses in cooperation with Egged.

In 2010, after he was already suspected of criminal acts in a number of cases, Olmert received an offer to work for Motti Zisser – before he too saw his business go bankrupt. Zisser already employed someone close to Olmert, former Jerusalem city engineer Uri Sheetrit, who was also convicted last week of receiving bribes in the Holyland case.

Olmert decided to accept the suggestion of Taavura and Avraham Livnat, who appointed him chairman of the Avraham Livnat Group.

This week Haaretz asked the Livnat family whether Olmert would remain chairman of the group after his conviction, or whether he would be fired – but the Livnats declined to answer. Sources close to the family said the Livnats see no reason to remove Olmert, and they emphasize that theirs is a privately owned firm.

The fact of Taavura being privately held – and not publicly traded – is important, since if it were public, Olmert would have no choice but to resign as convicted criminals cannot serve in such positions. The message seems to be that since the firm is private, convicted criminal Olmert has no contact with the public’s money.

This, of course, is deceptive. While the Avraham Livnat Group is a private entity, it owns a public company: Maman. Also, just a month ago Taavura raised 50 million shekels from institutional investors, who manage the public’s pension and provident funds. Add that sum to the 190 million shekels in loans the group has already taken out.

So, what is Olmert’s connection to all this? The Livnat family loves to tell the story of the father, Bondi, who will never forget how Olmert’s father invited him in when he was a poor, young Holocaust survivor all alone in a new country. It is certainly an emotional story, but it also has a very troubling side as revealed in the past by Raviv Drucker on the "Hamakor" investigative TV show: Olmert was involved as the industry and trade minister in decisions that favored Dankner and the Livnats. Olmert was responsible for raising duties on cement, which was to the benefit of the Livnats and their Nesher cement monopoly.

Bribes from public funds

Israel Salt Industries' lands, those at the heart of Danny Dankner’s second trial and conviction, no longer belong to the Dankners. It was sold a few years ago, along with their shares in Bank Hapoalim, to Shari Arison – the controlling owner of the bank.

Arison bought out the public in the industries, and now it is a private firm. But until then, the company was a public company controlled by the Dankner family. This did not seem to bother Dan Dankner, who took the money from bribes out of its coffers in 2003 and 2004. And Akirov has "joined" Dankner, by means of using the auspices of his publicly traded Alrov to hire Zaken – allegedly to ensure her silence.

This information was discovered by police investigations. The question is how many other such strange jobs are being offered today in companies in which our pensions and other savings are invested – but about whose operations the public knows nothing.

Nochi Dankner paid tens of millions of shekels over the years to lobbyists, brokers and various consultants – without the public knowing who those people were and why they were employed. Occasionally the media exposed a few of these cases. For example, IDB paid 4 million shekels to a new investment banking firm controlled by the former chairman of the Israel Securities Authority, Zohar Goshen, and lobbyist Tomer Amir: The sum was paid as brokers' fees on a deal to sell a company, but in the end some else actually closed the deal. Only nine months earlier Goshen still served as chairman of the ISA, which was supposed to supervise Dankner – but which allowed him and the Livnat family to distribute billions of shekels in dividends, thus precipitating IDB's collapse.

IDB also paid some 2 million shekels to Aryeh Deri, the head of the Shas party, for services that still remain unknown. Deri, as everyone knows, served as interior minister, was convicted of accepting bribes and was sentenced to three years in prison.
