Morris Moshe Talansky has been in the hot seat for his gifts, loans, contributions to Ehud Olmert, but Olmert isn't the only Israeli politician who benefited from rich, generous friends.
Legendary Ezer Weizman was forced to leave the country's Presidency for receiving similar "gifts."
Lots has been written about how Shimon Peres's Peace Center
makes it easy for his supporters, including foreign organizations, to give him much more money than the measly
few hundred thousand dollars Talansky admits he gave to Olmert.
Now I wonder, I'm curious about how many Israeli politicians have never received similar "gifts" from friends and supporters, here and abroad. We only know what has already been revealed.
No doubt there's plenty more being kept secret, at least for the time being.
Because of this, Olmert feels safe.
