Ehud Olmert said Israelis to be evacuated from isolated West Bank settlements would be moved to the major settlement blocs in the territory. Asked in a Newsweek interview, the first he has given to a foreign publication since being elected prime minister last month, what his “convergence plan” would entail, Olmert said: “The idea is that most of the settlements that would have to be removed” will be “converged into the blocs of settlements that will remain under Israeli control.”
