It seems like Israel is standing at the lowest point ever; Our president is going to be, after his hearing, charged with Rape, Illegal sexual encounters with workers, using the State’s money to buy presents and threatening a witness.

And when everything is corrupt, what can you do?

This whole circus is problematic for me. I’m on the verge of finishing my LL.M and going after my Doctorate. I wanted to attend a LawSchool in the UK. the problem is that it will make me leave my country and stop acting.

The good thing to know is that in a survey conducted yesterday, “only” 41% of the public thought that Moshe Katsav was guilty; we still have faith in our lynch mobs…
