Google should start reading Wikipedia… The Prime Minister of Israel right now is Ehud Olmert, he’s in office since April 14, 2006. [according to Wikipedia]

youre right Haochi..
Google is completely wrong..
Ariel Sharon is in a coma right now.. so he cant really function as a prime minister.. :P

this site is also wrong..

i think Google should stick with its old sources.. Wikipedia..

What do others did with this query?

Does not have a OneBox/Smart Answer/Direct Link
However, they have the Wikipedia result as result #1 and #2.
Same page slightly different URL. One url is singular (minister) the other
plural (ministers).

Live Search from MSN
Lists Ehud Olmert at the top of the page.
President Moshe Katzav, and the Head of State is Prime Minister Ehud Olmert at the top of the page.
Full disclosure, as many of you know I work for

From the above I would conclude that Live Search offers the best result in this case.

Ask is close – but it offers some extra information that was not asked for (and is not *strictly*) relevant.

Yahoo has got to be third, as at least it doesn't present a definitive answer that is wrong (like Google does) at the top of the page.

And then our best friend Google is last.

on one parameter Sam..(which is not really Google's fault..)

after all Google is not just a brand name.. it also satisfied its users :)
