Enough justices will recuse themselves that only the most totally corrupt will be left to decide the case. That way the justices will preserve themselves from the wrath of Likud while ensuring Likud's darling Katsav will prevail. With that outcome will end any pretense of Israel being a nation of laws instead of a nation of depraved politics. Which would be one of the worst thinks i can imagine. To have what was once a nation which was a light unto the world turned into a den of total depravity by the Likud is an awful thing to imagine.
