Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told a crowd of some 750 immigrants from the former Soviet Union at a Kadima rally in Nazareth Illit that he understood the language and the needs of Russian speakers. Olmert said his parents moved to Shanghai, China, where they sought refuge during the Holocaust, his father from Samara, Russia, and his mother from Odessa, Ukraine. They later moved to Israel from Shanghai. Former Shin Bet chief Avi Dichter said at the rally that his father fought in the Russian army during World War II.
