"You forgot simple fact. every man has the right to voice his opinion." "Voicing one's opinion" does not mean rioting, throwing stones or arson, which is what the Israeli Arabs were doing in October 2000. But that still does not excuse the shoddiness, to say the least, or perhaps the cover-up, of the Or Committee and the internal police investigation. It was all done wrong from the outset. A state investigating committee should have been set up - but perhaps the authorities were afraud of the possible outcome. After all, it was such a state investigating committee that decided that Ariel Sharon was unfit to serve ever again as minister of defense, and forced him to resign.(In the end we got him as PM, but that's not the committee's fault. Vox populi vox Dei.
