Arab communities worry over lack of personal safety and trust that police will take action.01:20 02.05.16 | 1 comments
"....not a day of joy". "Day of sorrow and disgrace". "A special day for Israel". "....even if that man is a president". "....there is now practical content to the sentence equality before the law". Well, I would like to comment/talkback like this: Why is it not a day of joy? Do you feel sorry for Katzav? Do you feel sorry for other criminals as well, like murderers? Or is it a sad day because of the fact that he is an former president? Listen - his actions were not made in the name of the jewish people or the State of Israel - he is an individual that committed a crime, nekuda. And please, Mr. Prime Minister: the day of "sorrow and disgrace" was the day when he committed the crime against those women. But you didn´t speak out then. Obviously, you think that the admittedly sad and tragic case of Katzav is more important than the victims of his crime. Now that´s a disgrace, Mr. Netanyahu. And by saying "even if he is a president", then you imply that sentencing a president is a brave achievement, that it is daring to investigate our leaders? Well, it is not. But maybe you are sad because you expect and believe that our leaders should be shining role models and moral giants? Well, welcome to reality. And Livni - hello? There has been "practical content to the sentence equality before the law" for almost 63 years. But if you hope that Israel is "undergoing change", then you are saying that there has been no justice and no equality before the law during all these years? What a bizarre remark! I would recommend both Tzipi and Binyamin to "fire and hire" - get rid of the old media advisors and employ better people.
