Dear President Peres, it is not a sad day. The sad day was when he committed the crime (a sad and very painful day for the victims). Today is a great day. Now, I don´t like statues, in general - I think it is a custom from the past that doesn´t fit in our modern society - but if you all agree that there should be statues of our presidents, then you shouldn´t remove "Katzavs head". When kids see it, they also read in the historybooks, and there they will find a story of many great achievements and a life-long career that ended in tragic shame. Let that be a lesson, for all of us. But Peres, Netanyahu and Livni have been so anxious today, with their talk about equality before the law, that it arouses suspicion: maybe the courts and judges are corrupt and driven by prejudices? Was it difficult for the judges to examine and assess correctly the facts and evidence because of the fact that the defendant was a former president? What about the "quality of the judiciary"? Did Katzav get a fair trial? I think so, yes. If a Professor of Law out there has other ideas, please let us know.
