an interesting aspect of this trial is the fact she took probably the most expensive and eccentric lawyer in israel who takes the most off the wall cases around. i doubt very much that she or her family could afford him and he was probably financed by some 'altruist' group etc. she deserved to sit in jail and four and one-half years is not a short sentence even though her crime was tantamount to treason. she probably is just young, idealistic and stupid.
