    "Corruption" tend to spread to all the facets of one's behavior, so the law can fortunately get the corrupt one way or the other. Let us look at some examples. 1. Al Capone was a mobster, but he was put in jail because he did not pay his taxes. A mobster who commits crimes against others, tend to commit crimes against the state too. 2. Arik Sharon fooled his government into the Lebanon war. He was caught because he allowed the Phalange who were known to be a threat to the Palestinians to "clear" the refugee camps from terrorists. At least he got caught. Mind you, he also headed the Sharon Crime family. He fell "asleep", but at least his sons are to be indicted for mediating bribery (where papa was the bribed). 3. Olmert was responsible for war crimes in his two wars, but he was deposed for corruption, and may end up in jail for it./ Galant seems to have acquired land illegally and to have lied to the authorities about it. At least he was caught. Human justice is not perfect, but at least human behavior is even less perfect.
