    "The good news: Israel has a justice that is so independent and fierce, that neither the president (Katsav), nor the Prime Minister (Olmert), nor the major or Jerusalem (Lupoliansky) are above the law." - Fortuna Benmayor And which one has been convicted and sent to prison? The rule of law in Israel has become a bad joke. The nation regularly ignores it's supreme court. It's top politicians are prosecuted endlessly in the press, but not with effect in it's courts. "The bad news: A president, a prime minester and the major of the capital are all shameful, corrupt people. This isn`t the Israel we dreamed and worked so hard for." - Fortuna That is the REALITY of modern Israel. "Maybe the grinning is the devil`s one, and it`s a subtle, subliminal visual pun." - Fortuna I don't know about the Devil, but Israel has become used to grinning at crime and corruption when it can no longer wink at it.
