1. Come on! Why are they complaining?
Steve ,   US   (11.24.08)
This is Kadima's mandate; the dissolution, dismemberment of the Jewish state. This is the Kadima party platform. Let's not forget Ariel Sharon. Sharon ignored and then betrayed Likud party (platform) principles as they then stood. Sharon expelled thousands of Jews from the land. He then bolted Likud and established this bas-ard step-child, Kadima. Olmert was Sharon's hand-picked successor for heaven sakes. Olmert is carrying out the Sharon shameful legacy. This is Kadima. Kadima is about the dismemberment and the destruction of Israel. These Kadima officials chose their bed when they chose Kadima. They freely chose Kadima. You chose your bed. Now lie in it.
2. lvini backbone
alexi   (11.24.08)
You want to be PM of israel, show some backbone, tell him to shut up and to desist from any political manowevers. I understand that you feel this way but are reluctant to say so publically. Why? Are you afraid of Olmert? If so, you cannot be PM of Israel and you won't be. You were afraid of olmert back in 2007 and of Mubarak and Geit later. Based on that, you cannot be PM of Israel. and Hasson, of course Olmert is going to take Kadima down. If he goes down, everyone goes down, get it, including the state of israel. He hates you and you and you. He only cares for himself and that wife of his and his 2 sons who hide outside the country.What a weakling. Tell olmert to shut up!Smack him in the fact for losing the hezbollah war!
3. Bad Leaders ?
Marcel ,   Florida   (11.24.08)
Hear O Israel ! "Hear, O My people, and I will speak, O Israel, and I will testify against you; I am God, your God!.......... Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me." But to the wicked God says: "What right have you to declare My statutes, Or take My covenant in your mouth,Seeing you hate instruction And cast My words behind you? When you saw a thief, you consented with him, And have been a partaker with adulterers. You give your mouth to evil, And your tongue frames deceit. You sit and speak against your brother; You slander your own mother's son. These things you have done, and I kept silent; You thought that I was altogether like you; But I will rebuke you, And set them in order before your eyes. "Now consider this, you who forget God, Lest I tear you in pieces, And there be none to deliver: Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; And to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God." Psalm 50
4. Livni can't distance herself from Olmert's policies
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, DC USA   (11.24.08)
Since Livni has been in the thick of Olmert's foreign policy, even conducting negotiations with the Palestinians, she can't legitimately complain that Olmert's statements put her in a bad light by making explicit a strategy the populace opposes. If Olmert's policies are not Livni's, exactly what are her policies? What exactly *are* her plans toward Syria, Iran, the PA, Hamas, etc.? How will she stand up for Israel's interests and not simply act as water carrier for the US? She can't simply put up signs that Livni is "good for the country". That's a meaningless slogan... like hope or change.
5. Olmert works for Bibi,everyone for Bibi !

6. At election time they complain?
Yoni ,   Chiloquin   (11.24.08)
They didn't complain when they gave away live arab murderers for corpses! They didn't complain when they discussed more pogrom/expulsions to give arabs more rocket launching sites. They never once complained about the plight of the Sephardic Jews on the border with Gaza. Every last one of them has demonized the Jews that live across the supposed "green line" yet the coddle the Jew killers in Gaza and Judea. Every anti-Jew policy of Kadima is coming back to haunt them on this election and the idiots are blaming Olmert? One of the first signs a child has grown up is there ability to accept responsibility for their actions. As we see the children of Kadima want to blame an elephant for stepping on their election rather than their own deliberate actions. This is the law of logical consequences at work in Israel.
7. Kadima
Ricardo Macher ,   KarneiShomron Israel   (11.24.08)
Reading the article and the talk backs I am astonished that nobody sees the message! This Kadima guys are not worried about what Olmert is saying may hurt Israel! They are just worried about their chairs in the Knesset!!! They are not patriots, they are power lovers with no self respect! G forbid this bunch may survive this election!
8. Olmert has made it very clear that Livni is not competent!
redmike ,   tel aviv   (11.24.08)
Olmert obviously thinks that Livni is not ready and might possibly think that Bibi is the best choice available. If he believes that then he should attempt to sideline her. Mike
9. PM Olmert issue is not what he is saying
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (11.24.08)
It is the fact that he is saying exactly what Kadima stands for. The only complaint that Livni has is the timeline not the policy itself. Meaning she intends to attempt to surrender Judea, Samaria and the Golan, just at a slower timeline. A vote for Kadima is a vote for more terrorism and absolute surrender of all lands and the migrations of millions of terrorists into Israel
10. #7 Ricardo, you are 100% right
NC ,   Canada   (11.24.08)
The purpose of an election is not to further the success of "the party". The purpose of an election is to elect leaders who believe that they can genuinely contribute to the improvement of the country! The people in Kadima forgot a long time ago that they should strive to get elected so they can serve the interests of Israel and not their own personal interests!!
11.  Olmert
Bert ,   US   (11.24.08)
The Kadima folk worry only that Olmert is telling Kadima's position and that being so outspoken hurts Kadima come the election. They are not calling Olmert a liar- only that he hurts Kadima in the election.
12. Ehud Livni or Tzipi Olmert is there differences?
Jewish Refugee ,   U.S.A.   (11.24.08)
I am sorry but when I see Ehud Livni I think he is Tzipi Olmert. They are political twins. No matter what Tzipi Livni wants to do she will always be Ehud Olmert. Please join new Pro-Israel blog at where you can finally voice your opinions without any censoring, you can contribute your articles. Make a difference.
13. yeah...well what goes around comes around scumbags
JL   (11.24.08)
14. Nice to see Olmert doing something good for Israel
zionist forever   (11.25.08)
Israel run by Livni and the US run by Obama is the nightmare situation. We sadly can't do anything about Obama now so we can at least try and limit the damage by keeping Livni & Kadima out of office. Its nice to see Olmert undermining Livni although what it does show is Olmerts motive for selling out the country. He doesn't want Livni getting any of his glory and all he wants or has ever wanted is to go down in he foreign history books as the brave man, the visionry, the great peacemaker and all the bullshit of the man of peace. Of course the Nobel Prize he is garunteed if he starts handing out parts of Israel to its enemies and the more he gives the more of a hero he becomes. Olmert will claim his rewards and he will be given citizenship of any country in the world he wants to move to so he can escape Israeli justice. Israel under Olmert has been an object of shame for jews wordlwide. So many jews fought and died to make Israel a reality now we have a regime wanting to make it part of history.
