    Dear Fairplay, You posting was very clear and succinct. I think Paul Harris should be able to follow your logic, though he is not having one of his better days today. From your comments, it would appear that you believe Israel is moving away from being a constitutional democracy through its abuse of the rule of law, as is suggested will happen by this statement from the PM?s Office. Would you not agree with those like myself who would claim that Israel has not been a constitutional democracy for a number of years now, and that the PMO statement is just another step away from the democratic ideals it abandoned ages ago?
