1. Perks for the perp
PETRA ,   USA   (11.11.08)
when will Israel encouage truth over protecting a known rapist? CLEAN YOUR OWN HOUSE, ISRAEL!! WE EXPECT MORE FROM YOU THAN THIS! THIS JUDGMENT PUTS A BLIGHT TO THE NATIONS INSTEAD OF 'THE LIGHT TO THE NATIONS.' YOU PERPETUATE THE NOTION THAT WOMEN ARE NOTHING UNDER THE LAW. SHAME!
2. Luxury office suite - instead of jail cell
Keren ,   Haifa, Israel   (11.11.08)
Why is Mr. Katsav in need of office space in the first place? What business or duties does he have and why should the taxpayer have to foot the bill? Could this money not be better spent to serve members of the public suffering under budget cuts? Is it any wonder so many of the public feel disheartened and hopeless in a country with such priorities?
3. HAs Peres anything to do with this? I wonder.
JAyjay ,   Israel   (11.11.08)
The corruption of this government is criminal, and Peres, as well as Olmert, should be investigated!
4. Petra - no conviction he is still considered innocent
Eric ,   Tel Aviv   (11.11.08)
Until they can convict him he is still considered innocent and thus entitled to all the perks that other former Presidents and PMs get. Like it or not it is the law. What they need to do is set guidelines for prices and entitlements that would limit them for everyone and would have special considerations for those indited or under investigation (pending proof of innocence of course).
5. Who is the fool?
Larry Rich ,   Ramat Ishai, Israel   (11.11.08)
I am disgusted that the former disgraced President will tower over Tel Aviv at my (our) expense. He has brought shame down upon his former office, his people & his family and he has made a mockery of decency and law. He forfeited his rights to any respect from us due to his far-from-presidential behavior, yet the Finance Ministry (or some crony within it) decided that he may flaunt his warped ego at this nation and at our expense. As a tax paying citizen of Israel, I demand that this travestry be reversed!!!
6. Beyond disgusting
Talula ,   Israel   (11.11.08)
What does he need a secretary for? Second thought, don't bother answering - we know why.
7. katzav
sas ,   israel   (11.11.08)
UNREAL.................................the man belongs behind bars and now he is getting a fancy office. DISGUSTING. Who is paying rent etc???????????????????????????????????
8. With all the disgust, Katzav was still better than Peres.
Tahl ,   Israel   (11.11.08)
With all the disgust I have for Katzav's actions, I still think - forcing intercourse is not as horrible as signing the release of a baby-murderer, in exchange for two dead bodies. In the very difficult choice between a disgusting sex-offender, and someone who is all world-class, nobility and sophistication, yet releases the worst murderers for no practical reason - my preference would be the former. Katzav raped a few secretaries, Peres and Olmert, in Kuntar's release, were raping an entire country.
9. Katzav gets new office
Paladin ,   J-M   (11.11.08)
The other name for a notable edifice is a great erection....
10. Its a tall building maybe he might jump
Eric... ,   Israel...   (11.11.08)
off the top floor and save the country alot of money.How self centred can a person be ? No shame.......
11. Katsav has brought national shame to Israel
Simon ,   TA Israel   (11.11.08)
Just what kind of a message is this sending out to women? Yes you can sexually molest women and rape them and if you have enough political clout and money not only can you get away with it but the state will reward you to. Exactly what does this low life scum need such an office for , the only possible reason i could think of its not far from the sleezy sex bars and clubs of Ramat Gan " In any other normal country this monster would be behind bars, sure says something about the current state of the Israel.
12. HIS NEXT SUITE WILL BE IN A PRISON.
Ben Avraham ,   Tel Aviv   (11.11.08)
13. No taxation without representation
Adam ,   Raanana   (11.11.08)
Too bad they steal the money from our bank accounts otherwise I would stop paying taxes. This country is run by a nation-wide mob... It's disgraceful!
14. # 9 Paladin
Raptor ,   Tel Aviv   (11.11.08)
Aah ! Now I know. I greet the sunrise each day with a "notable edifice".
15. He is an ALLEGED sex offender and Mazoz is to blame!
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (11.11.08)
The English on this "rag" stinks just as much as Attorney General's failure to bring Katzav and, for that matter, Olmert to justice! That's the way it is here. The Treasury block expansion of the railways which would benefit thousands and reduced the carnage on the roads but gives this alleged felon a present of NIS 168,000 a year! Mazoz appears to be delaying the prosecution of Katzav and Olmert until he goes on pension!
16. Has it got a Jacuzzi,Big bed and .....handcuffs
Alan ,   SA   (11.11.08)
17. a jail cell is better how many girls will
eliezer ,   jerusalem   (11.11.08)
he attack on the top floor when no one is there/
18. My husband works in that building....
d ,   centre   (11.11.08)
he had better not be in the elevator with him alone or he will not come out......the pig
19. 11 Simon
Darren ,   Oakland, CA   (11.11.08)
Better a president that raped one woman than a president that raped 3 nations (Afghanistan, Iraq, and, yes, the USA). Say what you will about Katsav and the Israeli establishment, they aren't nearly the monsters Bush and his cronies are.
20. To all ladies in the building
Sagi ,   Israel   (11.11.08)
I have a great line in super hi tech chastity belts. Discount on offer for full office staff .
21. Don't Stand Under The Building
Larry ,   zefat Israel   (11.11.08)
Without a Good Umbrella.
22. WHY?
Miriam ,   Israel   (11.11.08)
