    What an horrible article. I don't think anyone, except maybe Shtraser, is happy to see our president shame our country in such an awful way. Why feel sympathy for a serial rapist? Put the emphaty were the empathy should bee, for his victims. Katzav has ruined the lives of many women, including his wife. I know that he isn't trialed yet, but with accusations as grave as these, the man has to leave his post as a president immiediately. Shed the tears were the tears should be shed. This man has shamed Israel in front of the whole world. He is not a helpless citizen as he like us to believe. He is number one. The president. You can't get higher than that. And as a president he hasn't only ruined women after women but also ruined Israel, at least in the part of the world with a more developed equality between men and women then we have here. And I have to shed tears for his economy? Shame on Shtrasler and most of all, shame on Katzav!
