1. Again Israel proves it's legal system...
Mark from Georgia ,   USA   (12.30.10)
Like the U.S., is fair, that nobody is above the law. Imagine this happening in any Muslim country. They would have stoned the women to death or murdered her to protect the image of the leader. In those countries it is illegal to criticize the government or the leaders, not to mention Islam. These are places with little freedom. So again Israel proves how similar it is to the U.S., nobody is above the law, not even the President.
2. Not only a lesson to all women
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (12.31.10)
It's an important lesson to men in power, that they shouldn't use their positions illegally, either for extracting sexual favors or for stealing money from the public coffers You only have to look at the U.S. Congress, loaded with money grubbers and fabor seekers Anyone know Charlie Rangel, he''s the lastest to be exposed ?
3. # 1, a selective judicial system you mean!
Moise   (12.31.10)
Just as recent as 1 week ago, a lady was dismissed because she made public a sexual haddassement from a higher security officer. the case was dismissed due to insuffiscent prove. I sense a war withing Israeli judicial system, Katsave paid a the price. and he deserve the sentence.
4. justice before God and law
tulag ,   selah   (12.31.10)
in the same vein the holy scriptures reveils the sins of its greatest Kings and prophets ...
5. in north western europe
sweeter than honey ,   far away   (12.31.10)
corruption and abuse of power is not unknown in government, (but rape is unknown in state). does that mean that israel is in north western europe? or is there also a cultural thread here? the disgraced ex-president's origins? the middle-east in general? or does this phenomena have no geographical or heritage determinant? i know what i'll be told and spun, but i know what i will forever think, not least that the convicted, whilst duly elected president of israel, and head of the state of israel, conscious of his office no doubt, as there is no diminished responsibility, committed rape.
6. Trial
Marilyn ,   USA   (01.01.11)
I cannot come to any conclusions, because people need information in order to make sense of things. It's like trying to put a puzzle together, when there are multiple pieces missing. It's like if wanting us to do something or think something, then need to bring us most of the pieces first.
7. #6 Marilyn
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (01.01.11)
What more do you want, he was tried, convicted, judged and about to be sentence Totally unlike William Jefferson Clinton, who lied through his teeth about his sexual activites and got away with it Clinton had one advantage, he's a charmer, Katsav isn't, he irritated people
