Report: Americans involved in anti-Olmert plot


Israeli and American right-wingers are ready to pay at least $1 million to anyone who produces evidence of a scandal that would force Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to resign, Israel’s Channel 2 reported.

The television report included a conversation between an unnamed businessman and a private investigator hired to garner the information, according to The Jerusalem Post.

The investigator asked the businessman if he had information that could incriminate Olmert.

“In the beginning you may be a bit put off, but think about it, you don’t have to give me an answer now,” the investigator told the businessman. “A number of senior personages on a global level are behind this initiative. The situation today is that Olmert is bad for the Jews. You know no less than me that he’s very bad for the Jews.”
