Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who has been comatose since a stroke in January, will be moved to a long-term care clinic next week, a hospital spokeswoman said. Sharon, 78, suffered a massive brain hemorrhage Jan. 4. His deputy, Ehud Olmert, took over as interim leader and formally assumed office this month after his Kadima party won the most seats in March elections.

Ehud Olmert pledged to immediately resign as Israel's prime minister once his party chooses his successor as leader next week, shooting down speculation that he would try to hold on to his office. Olmert, who is battling a corruption investigation, announced in July that he would resign after his Kadima party chooses a new leader in Wednesday's primary. But some thought he was vague about the timing of his exit.

A 67-year-old Jew was stabbed to death Thursday in apparent revenge for the Israeli police killing of 17 Arabs on Jerusalem's Temple Mount last year, authorities said. Shlomo Yehia was killed at Moshav Kadima, north of Tel Aviv. Pictures of Temple Mount, site of Islam's third-holiest shrine, were scattered nearby, a police spokesman said. The Temple Mount killings last Oct. 8 prompted a series of Palestinian stabbings of Jews in Israel.

The deal to bring Shas into the new government came after weeks of coalition haggling and was approved late Sunday by a panel of party elders.

The stroke that left Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon hospitalized has abruptly recast the nation's election campaign and raised questions about whether the mass of centrist voters he hoped to mobilize under a new party would hold together behind a replacement leader. The seriousness of Sharon's condition Thursday made it appear unlikely he could continue serving as prime minister and lead his new movement, Kadima, or Forward, in elections still scheduled for March 28.

The leader of Israel's ruling party, Tzipi Livni, gave up her attempts to form a coalition government, setting the stage for early elections. That puts opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu, a critic of the Palestinian peace process, in a strong position to become the country's next prime minister. Livni has been trying to put together a government since she replaced Prime Minister Ehud Olmert as head of the ruling Kadima party last month.
