Ehud Olmert is scheduled to speak again at the annual Jerusalem Post conference in New York.
US citizens have a right to know which American citizens sent $600,000 in cash to Mr. Olmert through Mr. Morris Talanski, a man who made his reputation as a man who carries donations to people Israel on behalf of American clients.
Mr. Olmert is now on trial in Israel at this time for taking bribes.
However, the Israeli court is not dealing with the source of the money.
However, as Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has often said, there are two courts- the court of law and the court of public opinion.
That second court of public opinion would logically demand that Olmert identify which American citizens tried to buy influence with public official who served as Mayor of Jerusalem, Israel Minister of Finance and the Prime Minister of Israel.
Why does the Jerusalem Post corporation honor a man on trial for such a felony?
And what does the US Justice Department have to say about a foreign government official who received cash payments from US citizens?
Should the FBI not be asked to question Olmert about the source of his cash payments?
