    Your hysteria means that you are no better than those you have pre-judged. Ilana wrote: "Two women claim he raped them. They say that they didn`t want to have sex with him. They say he forced them brutally to have sex with him against their will." The truth from Mazuz's statement (J. Post, Jan. 23): "The second charge involves this Aleph, who worked at Beit Hanassi in 2003 and 2004. According to Mazuz, Katsav is suspected of having forbidden intercourse with Aleph's consent, committing an indecent act without consent by exploiting his authority in employment, and sexual harassment." Thus the 2nd woman is not claiming "forceable" let alone "brutal" rape at all, but *did consent* to the act as quoted. The charge is that he used his authority to intimidate her, which in today's PC-speak is "rape". She should have quit rather than have sex. The intimidation was a crime, if it was done. We now must wait on the court to decide that. You crying "he raped" before trial is called lynching.
