|Man in a Desert||
A court in Israel has convicted former president Moshe Katsav of rape. Former prime minister Ehud Olmert is facing coruption charges. Former president Ezer Weizman was forced by public pressure to resign in 2000 over hundreds of thousands of dollars he received from businessmen before becoming president.
Somehow this reminds me of a letter sent to prime minister Menachem Begin by the father of an Israeli soldier killed during the invasion of Lebanon in 1982.
Strong words which no Arab would dare aim at his or her leader. Just like no Arab leader has ever been brought to trial over any of the issues that the multitudes of Arabs always complain about. This, of course, does not include Saddam Hussein who was put on trial under exceptional circumstances. Naturally, no Arab leader or government would even accept being spoken to or treated in such a manner. Maybe America and Israel are to blame for that state of affairs too...
