    There is no doubt that this sordid episode in Israels history has caused her great embarrassment on the world stage. but its not all bad. The world will also see a thriving democracy at work in the middle east. A democracy with an impartial and independent court. While Israel and all zionists should be embarrassed by this affair, we should all be justifiably proud of the country and the way the Judiciary has performed. Now more than ever the world can only see Israel as the only stable country in the region.
