    This unanimous judgment by the three judges - two women, one man - will change juridical normative genes relationship and may announce the end of an area of male behavior. For decades we were used to an old approach by influential men similar to those Europeans nobility with is special male / ownership rights. Haim Ramon is not the first minister who apparently took for granted this approach of long standing, but he now will maybe the last male of this standing. The fixed rule now declares something like ?a kiss is a promissory note with an open date of maturity? = an indecent criminal behavior instead of a fleeing act of sympathy, clearly depending on circumstances and type of kiss. Haim Ramon will of course launch an appeal probably based upon the unanimous disbelief by the judges of his testimony irrespective of the appeal?s outcome Haim Ramon will have to change his public position accordingly. - A heavy prize. Already clear is Olmert cannot return to his former position of Minister of Justice. Whatever the result of the to be launched appeal against today?s judgments maybe. The sentencing date fixed for February 21 will be very close to the publishing of the first Winograd Commission interim report with its influence on former Minister of Justice Ramon and other government members, mainly PM Olmert and Defense Peretz. ? The court?s findings of course will have a very negative influence on PM already weakened position. Olmert is losing in his cabinet not only a friend but also a very seasoned politician on whom he counted and whether he will be able to continue with his preparations for large scale personal reshuffle within the cabinet, to carry out.
