    In the past decade, 2 Pres. have stepped down, 5 Premiers have been investigated,(Sharonx2) both Chief Rabbis and too many M.K.s to mention have endured the disgrace of criminal investigations. Remarkably, no Knesset female has ever been investigated to my knowledge. Instead, she directly benefits as was the case with Edna Arbel who ascended to the High Court on the coattails of the Sharon/Olmert scandal. Today, the Pres.of the Supreme Court is a woman, Pres./Knesset is a woman, soon interim Pres./Israel will be a woman and if Olmert?s scandal worsens, Livni replaces him(without a single vote being cast). Peres or Rivlin may lose their bid to become next President as a result of todays news and instead a little known female emerges victoriously as 9th Pres. What's the Big Picture: Either the Israeli female is inherently less prone to corruption or the Spirit of Queen Jezebel is WELL and ALIVE in modern Israel.

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
