    In today's Haaretz editorial, the newspaper's editorial board (assumed to be headed by David Landau, editor in chief of Haaretz) declared that former chief Rabbi Lau is unworthy of the presidency of Israel and should voluntarily withdraw from the running. Here are the reasons given for this outrageous demand: 1. Rabbi Lau is suspected of various wrongdoings, including taking money for performing weddings, and sexual harrassment (according to three women who accused him). Rabbi Lau was never brought up on charges for any of these accusations, much less was he tried and convicted. Where I come from, there is a basic principle of democracy called "innocent until proven guilty" which apparently the bloodthirsty Landau does not subscribe too. In a country of 7 million people, it is virtually impossible to not find three or four people who will accuse a public figure of something, however outrageous it is. To say that such a public figure is unfit to run for office is patently ridicul
