On the hopefully erroneous hypothetical assumption that both President Moshe Katsav and Income Tax Commissioner are found guilty of the serious matters posited against them one has to ask who will have caused more harm to the fabric of Israeli society and its citizens? Will it have been the figurehead President or the all powerful Income Tax Commissioner? The figurehead President has no effective power whatsoever over the lives of the State's citizens. The Income Tax Commissioner can and does make decisions that affect each and every citizen of Israel. Why then are the press and the politicians baying for Katsav's blood in such a crusade of righteous indignation while the Maza story has all but disappeared from the public eye? Maza if found guilty will have caused immeasurable harm to the functioning of the State of Israel through his planned greed. Katsav if found guilty will have been rumbled as a middle aged lecher with no self control.
