WILL OLMERT SURVIVE?; RACE FOR SUCCESSION; BUSH VISIT; LEBANON HEATS UP, AGAIN; NO CEASEFIRE IN GAZA; OCCUPATION WOES

WILL OLMERT SURVIVE? "I am looking into the eyes of each and every one of you and am telling you that never have I received a bribe, never have I taken a dime into my own pocket. If the attorney general decides to indict me, I shall resign. I hope and believe we shall never reach that point. But if, God forbid, such will be decided I will not require any convincing or preaching from anyone."  This was Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's response on Thursday to the police investigation against him.
