A Tel Aviv court has found former Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert guilty of bribery linked to a Jerusalem property development, in one of the worst corruption scandals in Israeli history.At a lengthy hearing in Tel Aviv District Court on Monday presided over by Judge David Rosen, Olmert was convicted on two counts of bribery, making him the first former premier to be convicted of the offence and of perjury.
Together with Mr. Olmert, another two politicians were indicted. Mr. Uri Lopliyansky, the former mayor of Jerusalem, who was convicted on seven accounts of fraud, and Mr. Eli Simchayoff, who is an orthodox Jew and member of the Shas party, who was convicted on two accounts of fraud. He is the longest serving politician on the Jerusalem municipality who is an observant Jew. Needless to mention that all of the above are going to serve time in prison.
I would like to remind you that Lopliyansky and Simchayoff have been an essential part in the first gay parade in the holy city of Jerusalem. They abused there power to stop pro morality activists from stopping the parade. Is this a heavenly punishment?!?!?! ( Chareidi Jurnalist Jacob Rivlin claims that Lopliansky was the worst mayor the city of Jerusalem ever had. To Lopliyansky's defense ,one might argue that he didn't care about the peoples welfare as well. He just couldn't care less.)
Many believe that Olmert's indictment comes as a punishment for throwing thousands of Jewish families into extreme poverty and destitute by the Gaza disengagement. All other officials and politicians who orchestrated the Gaza disengagement have been plagued in various ways. Olmert was the last one of them.
Are we going to see the downfall of all Israeli pro- gay
