This Al Jazeera video is called Inside Story –Olmert questioned by police- 09 Oct 07.
From British daily The Guardian:
Israel’s 60th birthday celebrations yesterday ended in uncertainty and confrontation yesterday as fresh details emerged about a corruption investigation into the prime minister, Ehud Olmert, and a riot briefly pitted Arab Israelis against the police.
Celebrations marking the 1948 creation of the state of Israel were muted by the growing crisis surrounding Olmert. The festivities, the fireworks, the military displays and the barbecues had barely finished when the Tel Aviv magistrates court loosened a gag order on the investigation, revealing that Olmert is suspected of accepting bribes involving “significant sums of money”. …
The scandal threatens to demolish the already shaky coalition government and raises questions about whether a general election would be required if Olmert resigns.
It also risks overshadowing next week’s visit by the US president, George Bush, who has scheduled the trip to celebrate Israel’s 60th anniversary and to shore up the faltering peace talks with the Palestinians.
A brawl between police and Arabs who were protesting over Israel’s birthday celebrations further dampened the anniversary mood. Nearly 2,000 Arab Israelis rallied near the ruins of Tzipori, an Arab town in the Galilee that was destroyed in the wake of Israel’s creation in 1948. Violence erupted when a group of Israeli Jews arrived at the scene, prompting the police to intervene.
More demonstrations by Israel’s Arab minority – who along with Palestinians call the anniversary of Israel’s birth the Nakba, or catastrophe – are expected today, exacerbating the growing sense of uncertainty about Israel’s relationships with Arabs at home and in the region.
