Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert suggested on Sunday he could release some Palestinian prisoners this week, even though Gaza militants have yet to free a captured Israeli soldier.

At their first formal meeting on Saturday, Olmert pledged to release $100 million in withheld tax revenues to Abbas, bypassing the Hamas-led government.

  1. Olmert is under investigation for various crimes, such as illegally receiving money from abroad by selling houses at a high price, above market value, and buying them back at below market value. That was a cute way of evading Israeli law. He is also under investigation for helping a friend, the Australian Frank Lowy, buy Bank Leumi, Israel’s second largest bank [I believe] at below market value from the state, which had become the main owner of the bank back in the 1980s, as I recall. Olmert played this trick –to help a friend– when he was acting minister of the Treasury starting in mid-2005 after Netanyahu resigned from the Cabinet.
    We’ve never had a more corrupt government.
    As for Rafi Eitan, he’s the one who betrayed Pollard, according to various accounts.
