Ehud Goes to Washington

Olmert spoke to a joint-house session today, his full remarks can be found here. Video of the speech should be found here eventually.

The speech was quite moving, as the PM spoke about an Ethiopian immigrant girl killed in a suicide bombing after telling her parents she "knew where to sit on the bus" so she wouldn't be injured if there was a bombing. He also spoke of Daniel Wultz (scroll down), the American killed in the most recent attack on Israel. Wultz's family was in the gallery.

The PM devoted most of his speech to the Palestinians and Israel making painful sacrifices to secure peace for future generations in the region. He also spoke briefly on Iran and challenged those countries in the world seeking stability and peace to confront Iran & Ahmadenijad, calling it a "test we cannot afford to lose."
