Mystery Man in Olmert Investigation Named

NEW YORK -- Newsmax has learned that a foreign national Israel's attorney general has been searching for in an ongoing probe into the finances of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is a U.S. citizen living on Long Island.

Morris Talansky of Woodmere, Long Island, is simply identified as a local businessman who has donated funds to Olmert's election campaigns for Jerusalem mayor in the 1990s.

Sources tell Newsmax that Talansky had previously been interviewed by Israeli authorities and was "uncooperative."

Now it seems the attorney general may seek a formal deposition to allow a more intensive examination of the Olmert associate.

It is unclear just where the American businessman currently is.

Some say he is in the New York City area, others claim he is currently visiting Israel and has been there since mid-April.

Talansky was not available for comment.

Israeli sources tell Newsmax that the ongoing probe into Olmert's activities "is quite serious" and that the prime minister may not survive through the summer.

Next week, President Bush will pay his final visit to the region.

Bush will head to Israel as the Jewish state celebrates its 60th anniversary.
