Rape, sexual assault, eavesdropping, fraud, breach of trust and improprieties in gift distribution? While President Moshe Katsav’s job is mostly ceremonial, for a country that’s basically hated by everybody except America, he should be trying to put on a good face for the rest of the world. I mean, the world won’t take a country seriously if their president is a rapist and a fraud.
The end of the CNN article on this made me chuckle.
“Katsav was appointed president by parliament in 2000, after President Ezer Weizman resigned amid allegations of corruption.”
So presidents don’t hold a high political power. But if the Queen of England did something like this, it would overrule any small-ish wars that erupted.
Minorities must be more well-behaved if they want to make a larger positive impact on the world. It’s easier to stereotype if there are fewer people. Israel needs to get their act together when it comes to political figures. This drama is only distracting for the more important issue at hand – getting the entire world to not hate us.
