1. Time to start over.
Philip ,   Afula, Israel   (11.09.10)
Hanegbi is the real face of Israeli politics, rotten to the core. Lets hope that this will be a turning point in public life.
2. Sorry
Tomer ,   Hod Hasharon, Israel   (11.09.10)
I do feel a tiny bit sorry for HaNegbi, who seems to be one of the more sensible politicians of our times (but that's not saying much), and he does appear to be at least a little bit remorseful for his actions. But at the end of the day, perjury means he's been convicted of lying, and that should exclude him from significant public office for a period of time. That's a fitting punishment for him, and hopefully a warning to all the other lying, scheming, worthless non-entities that populate the Knesset.
3. justified ONLY IF a new standard is enforced
moshe ,   Tivon, Israel   (11.09.10)
Difficult to throw out Hanegbi when there are other polticos who have done MUCH worse...lying under oath on matters involving life and death decisions and other important matters. On the other hand IF the case of Deri, or Hanegbi are signs of a new ethical standard that WILL BE APPLIED be it ! moshe
4. freedom is money
arcadi ,   buena vista   (11.09.10)

5. Proof of the strength of our democracy
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (11.09.10)
Yea, Israeli democracy has a long way to go yet, but this decision shows that it's stronger than most of us think.
6. run for the next knesset?!
Nadav ,   tel aviv   (11.09.10)
what kind of country is this? he was convicted! he should never again run for public office and be barred from ANY public appointment!!! he is a disgrace! Unfortunately, he is the tip of the ice-berg, more need to be done to restore public hygiene in this oligarchic, nepotist, and corrupt country and economy!
7. Good ridence to bad rubbish

Moshe   (11.09.10)

9. 10,000 shekels?

13. moral turpitude
alexi   (11.09.10)
wahtever misdeeds he engaged in, he deserves hispunishment and fine for supporting olmert, the biggest appeaser non combat idf ever. Now abbas quotes olmert''s concessions as a starting point makinng peace virtually impossible. No hanegbi, olmert, hirschsson, zaken, ramon are peas in a pod wheter its corruption, cowardice, ignorance.
