Protesters gather to call for Olmert's resignation

Thousands of protestors gathered in the Tel Aviv to call for Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to resign due to his handling of the war against Hezbollah guerrillas, NY Times reported.

Leaders, including the foreign prime minister, also called for Olmert's resignation but for right now he refuses to step down. Although the protests are developing, protestors could turn violent if Olmert doesn't step down. But Olmert said he wants to be the one to fix the mistakes, CNN reported. The protests began because a report came out putting most of the failures of the war on Olmert.
