    I am unexceptionally against any form of violence in the administration of justice or in any harm to people and place that are strictly for the empowerement and enjoyment of the population for a Civil Society. However, in her frustrution the Great Oracle from the New Sanhedrin, President of the High Court of Justice, has overstepped her field of authority when she mentioned "Talkbacks" as a mean of fighting for that higher purpose of rendering good Justice. To me she sounds like accepting what the Mullahs in Iran are doing. They also revert to restricting the use of the Internet for the innocent expression of ones conception of what it means to be a citizen in 21st century, and take part of a debate. She should wait and see whether the culprits for the various (for the time being its one, and its too many) incidents against any member of the judicial, and whether it express an abheration or a tendency. The people are as frustruted as the representatives of the Establishment.
