Olmert 'A Man of Dubious Morals Preaching Morals to Us'

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin criticized former prime minister Ehud Olmert, Sunday afternoon, for Olmert's attacks on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Referring to Olmert's recent conviction on a corruption charge during a meeting with Likud student activists at the Hebrew University, Rivlin said, "The former prime minister, who is one of dubious morals, appears on television as a prime-minister elect and preaches to us how to behave morally. His appearance, last Friday, was part of a campaign for the 20th Knesset, assuming that these elections are closer than they appear. Olmert's campaign for prime minister creates within him the daring to place moral and public obstacles in front of Prime Minister Netanyahu, already at this stage."
