Bush calls on ministers to support Olmert

For the second straight day, US President George W. Bush intervened in Israeli politics, calling upon ministers at a working meal in Jerusalem to support Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. "Take care of Olmert, so he will stay in power," Bush said. "He's a strong leader. Israeli politics is like Karate that you never know when the next chop will come."
