    I am proud of Israel's democratic system. I don't think in countries like Egypt, Syria, Iran, Iraq or Saudi Arabia the compaints of women against the highest ruler would have been taken seriously.... even in the USA president Clinton came off relatively lightly. Also the late prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was protected and his sexual escapades were kept out of public view. Bravo for Israel.
