Morris Talansky is a victim.
At least, that is what the Long Island macher who brought down Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert wants you to believe; that’s the reality Talansky occupies in a lengthy feature in the new issue of New York magazine.
Talansky told New York’s Scott Fishman that Olmert’s demise came from an inability to avoid trouble:
“I feel the way I feel about the whole thing, very bad. You know, come on. I don’t know how to describe the whole thing….He’s a guy who gets himself into messes. That’s what I don’t understand about him. Maybe it’s a death wish.”
As for the media, Talansky wished God’s wrath be wrought upon them:
“I hope God makes them pay for what they did to me.”
