I am no fan of Katzav. I have only one reason to defend him. You, Mr. Benziman, gave that reason: - HONOR. IF the position of President has only honor at it's helm - then, whether or not the acting President seems to reflect this HONOR, he must be shown it. There is no HONOR is publically parroting accusations that have not yet been confirmed or even fully investigated. There is no HONOR in convicting based solely on what has been printed in the media. If the writer of this article really truely believes in the HONOR of the President's position - he has utterly failed to show it. Let the investigators and police puzzle together thier evidence. Let the powers that be analyze that evidence and decide if it has weight or not. Let the rest of us continue to HONOR the President (whether we like him or not) - until the investigation is either over or no longer relevant.
