Prime Minister Ehud Olmert admitted Wednesday that his country is plagued with organized crime. Addressing an international convention on corruption in government, Olmert said that crime has infiltrated many aspects of Israeli life. Departing from his text, which used the term "organized criminal activity," Olmert said he had decided to call the phenomenon by its name. "I think the time has come, unfortunately, to say organized crime."
