      Olmert: I'll be Active in Trying to Change Government


      Former prime minister Ehud Olmert hinted at a return to political life, Thursday evening, in a speech before the San Francisco Jewish Federation. Asked about his political plans, Olmert said, "I'll be very active in trying to change this government."

      Regarding Israeli-American relations, he said Israel must not be at the center of debate in the United States and without the actions of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu this would not have happened. Olmert said Israel was unnecessarily placed into the debate during the just-concluded presidential elections.
