Ex-Israeli PM makes devastating condemnation of Netanyahu’s war in Gaza

February 11, 2024

Mr Olmert’s strident criticism came as Mr Netanyahu snubbed the latest international attempt at a ceasefire, declaring that the war will continue until complete victory. Mr Olmert began his political career as a hawk who opposed returning land seized in the six-day war and voted against the Camp David Accords. “I ordered our forces to go into a war in Gaza when prime minister,” he said. He said of the conviction: “The fact is that you may be a president and prime minister, a senior politician. “Let’s see how that goes, again it is up to the court what happens to the prime minister,” said Mr Olmert.
