Lauder letter to Olmert urging Disapora role in Jerusalem negotiations stirs passions
(Page 2 - Previous Page)The issue of Lauder's letter was raised on Jan. 14 in a conference call Olmert held with members of the Presidents Conference. Olmert, according to one member involved in the call, said he agreed with Lauder that Diaspora Jews should have a voice and Israel should at least listen to it before acting.
"Olmert completely agreed," said the member, who wished to remain anonymous, because the call was closed to the press. "He couldn't have been more forthcoming in agreeing with Lauder's sentiments."
