JERUSALEM, Israel - Some analysts in Israel say it could soon be the end of the political road for Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.
Police today questioned him for a third time on suspicions that he illegally took money from American businessman Morris Talansky.
Olmert has survived a number of police investigations and charges that he mismanaged the Second Lebanon War against the terror group Hezbollah two years ago.
But public furor over the latest revelations expected from the third police investigation could Olmert on a course to leave his office, which he has so far resisted.
The Israeli newspaper Haaretz quotes police sources today who said that if he were an ordinary citizen and not prime minister, Olmert would have been arrested by now.
A new Dahaf poll published today in the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot shows that 79 percent of Olmert's fellow Kadima party members want him to resign.
