Aliza Olmert not a member of Women in Black

Aliza Olmert not a member of Women in Black

Aaron Lerner Date: 14 February 2006

Haya Shalom, a spokesperson for the radical left Israeli group "Women in
Black" told IMRA today that Aliza Olmert, wife of Acting PM Ehud Olmert "was
never a member of Women in Black, never attended nor was ever invited to
attend any activity of Women in Black."

Some internet websites relating to the current election campaign have
asserted that Mrs. Olmert is a founding member of Women in Black.

While Mrs. Olmert is certainly known to hold Left wing views, it is hardly
clear if her political views today can be terms to the Left of Ehud Olmert.

Mr. Olmert proposes to retreat from most of the West Bank - taking the
position that it does not matter who or what fills the void.

In sharp contrast, most of the "radical" Israeli Left take the position that
Israel should only transfer territory in an orderly fashion with - at least
on paper - provisions made to insure peace between Israel and the
Palestinians.

Thus it is not clear if Mr. Olmert can be termed "Left of the radical Left"
or simply an "anarchist".
