Gideon Levy writes that Katsav should go home now...... The problem is what sort of "home" can prison be...... On the other hand, if he would only have the guts to become a repentant mensch, Mazuz might commute his sentence to a conditional pardon: no more meidelach except Gila.... Banishment to Kiryat Malachi. And give up the gifts that he took home with him. There may even be a consolation prize: a free subsription to Ha'aretz (Hebrew edition) for the next five yrs.
