    Former Israeli PM Ehud Olmert sentenced to six years in prison in bribery scandal

    Looks like the rotten, old Olmert, who famously disrespected Condoleezza Rice

    "She was left shamed. A resolution that she prepared and arranged, and in the end she did not vote in favour," Mr Olmert said in a speech in the southern town of Ashkelon.

    Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was sentenced Tuesday to six years in prison for taking bribes while mayor of Jerusalem.

    Olmert was also fined 1 million shekels (about $289,000), Israeli state radio IB reported.

    Olmert was convicted in March of receiving about $161,000 in bribes related to a controversial Jerusalem housing project called Holyland. The judge acquitted Olmert on a third count of bribery.

    The developer of Holyland, Hillel Cherney, had been previously convicted of bribing Olmert and other high-level officials in exchange for Holyland approvals.

    Good job, Israel. This demonstrates accountability and transparency, even when it makes the state look bad. Meanwhile, Palestinians wage terrorist war against Israel basically on bribes entirely.

    In that regard, the Israeli Supreme Court ruled

    "The general point of departure of all parties which is also our point of departure is that Israel holds the area in belligerent occupation (occupatio bellica)"

    So what? That only further proves Israel's commitment to be as careful as possible in this war against a terrorist state.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Former Israeli PM Ehud Olmert sentenced to six years in prison in bribery scandalThis is not the correct forum to discuss the I/P conflict, that's what the ME forum is for. The topic here is "Former Israeli PM Ehud Olmert sentenced to six years in prison in bribery scandal".
    Any further off topic comments or attempts to circumvent Martial Law will receive consequences and this is the only warning i'm giving.
