    In most countries the minimum waiting period is between 50 - 70 years 20 years it to short especially when it comes to Israeli politics where somebody who was a politician 20 years ago is still a serving politician and these documents might be damaging to their career. Military people are almost certainly going to still be serving after just 20 years. The main point of having waiting periods is to ensure that its will have no impact on current issues and generally waiting till anybody concerned is dead. I don't see anything contreversial about extending a 20 year rule to a 70 year rule which is the average waiting time in most western countries. If its ok for the US or Europe to have 50 - 70 year rules why should it be wrong for Israel to extend its waiting period? Whe the US change their waiting period to 20 years then it will be wrong for Israel to wait 70 years. Lets not hold Israel to a double standard here
