On Monday, former prime minister Ehud Olmert’s career ended.
Earlier this month, former IDF chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. (ret.) Gabi Ashkenazi’s career ended.
And on Tuesday, the phony peace process ended.
In the lead-up to last year’s elections, the media and key political figures were yearning for Olmert’s return to politics.
In July 2008, Olmert was forced to cede leadership of the Kadima party, and so opt out of running for reelection, when then-attorney-general Menahem Mazuz announced he was indicting the premier on corruption charges. Olmert left office in March 2009 when his government was replaced by Binyamin Netanyahu’s coalition government.
