Former Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert ­discussed Iran’s nuclear development in a speech March 28 to an audience that packed McCosh 50.

Addressing the threat posed by Iran’s nuclear program, Olmert said “nobody can expect the state of Israel to remain indifferent.” He advocated cooperative action with “stronger, more influential” nations, including the United States.

“I think that the American leadership will carry on this effort, and Israel will be a part of it until Iran is stopped,” Olmert said.

The former mayor of Jerusalem also encouraged Israeli leaders to consider territorial concessions to the Palestinians based on the 1967 lines, including an agreement that would “create two capitals in two parts of Jerusalem.”
