Netanyahu aides call Olmert a 'continuous failure'

While Prime Minister Netanyahu stays above the fray, his aides have lashed out at former Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert, who criticized Netanyahu over the weekend, calling Olmert a 'continuous failure.'
Netanyahu's aides defended the premier's tough and defiant public criticism of the interim deal signed between the Islamic Republic and world powers freezing Tehran's nuclear program for six months in return for minor sanctions relief.
"There's a collapse of the sanctions against Iran, what are we to do? Send faxes to the White House?"
"Seventy-five years ago, before we had a state, the Jews tried to hold backroom talks with [then-US president Franklin D.] Roosevelt, and it did not really help the Jews of Europe," they added, according to Channel 2.
While Netanyahu himself did not respond to his predecessor's comments directly, his aides offered a harsh condemnation of Olmert's views.
"Not everyone has experience in continuous failure like Ehud Olmert does," they were quoted as saying. "Like his failure in running the country, in understanding the international state of things and in diplomacy."
Olmert "can talk to the Americans about the borders of Qalqilya in backrooms, but at the end of the day, in these kind of topics, you have to raise your voice," they added.
 They were too kind to Olmert. Way too kind.
