If I'm not mistaken, Olmert's "assurances" to Lame Duck US Bush that Israel won't build anymore housing for Jews in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem is not a Knesset decision. It did not pass any of the proper chanels. That means that it's Etrog Olmert's personal decision.
Now, millions of dollars have been invested by the government, private contractors and ordinary citizens in buildings that Olmert has decided can't be built.
These financial losses should not be ignored.
The Winograd Report describes how Olmert made war decisions without thinking them through, without consulting experts, ad nauseum. The Hebrew word repeated the most in the report, at least all the parts I heard, is ליקוי faulty, disabled. That's the Olmert way of governing.
This Shabbat we read the Parshat Shavua, Portion of the Week, Mishpatim, which deals with Laws, including compensation. There's one thing that must be done by everybody financially damaged by Olmert's announcement that buiding is to be stopped, frozen in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.
Sue Ehud Olmert as a private citizen!
Go to court against Olmert!
Olmert is not the Government of Israel.
Olmert cannot make unilateral decisions
that affect the future of our country.
Make Olmert Pay!!
