Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is seen in this August 8, 2006 file photo. Olmert faced a backlash on Friday over a U.N. proposal to end the war in Lebanon, with army officers charging that they were held back and right-wing rivals calling for new elections.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has accepted an emerging Mideast cease-fire deal and informed the United States of his decision, Israeli officials said Friday.
Olmert will recommend that his government approve the deal in its meeting on Sunday, said Gideon Meir, a senior official in the Israeli Foreign Ministry.
Meir said the military offensive in Lebanon would continue for the time being. It was not immediately clear if it would be halted after the U.N. Security Council vote on the cease-fire deal later Friday, or only after the Israeli Cabinet has endorsed it.
Put a fork in Olmert…..He is DONE.
Allah explains why.
There will be new elections in Israel and QUICK.
Flap knows that this war is NOT over.
Paul Mirengoff over at Powerline agrees with Flap.
And John Podhoretz over at National Review also believes the Omert government is finished – in less than a week.
