Olmert: My most painful moment – agreeing to J'lem concessions
Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Saturday night that the most painful moment in his life was when he told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that he was willing to allow international sovereignty over the Jerusalem's holy site.

 

In a conversation with senior political commentator David Ignatius at the Saban Forum in Washington, Olmert said that he was elected prime minister in order to make painful decisions, not to engage in nonsense. (Yitzhak Benhorin, Washington)
