Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is considering a political comeback to challenge incumbent Benjamin Netanyahu in the upcoming elections, aides said Wednesday.
HEBRON, West Bank (AP) — Israeli security forces armed with sledgehammers, chain saws and power clippers smashed through the fortified doors of a building in the holy city of Hebron yesterday to evict two Jewish settler families and hundreds of supporters.
JERUSALEM (AP) — Defense Minister Ehud Barak says Israel would have to have a missile defense system in place to protect it from Palestinian rocket fire before it could carry out a large-scale pullback in the West Bank, an official said today.
"I am talking to Ehud Olmert. He has obviously not made his decisions and we need to wait patiently," he told Army Radio.
Israeli Vice Premier Haim Ramon, a key ally of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's, said last month that he foresaw Israel pulling out of most of the West Bank, except for a few large clusters of settlements, as part of a negotiated peace settlement with the Palestinians.
