Israel's President was just escorted to prison where he will spend the next seven years for rape, and all kinds of other offenses; can you believe it?
Because he is very popular in a very vocal minority sector, there is still quite an outcry over the whole thing. He protests, very audibly, his innocence – but then all of them are innocent, right?
Israel sees this as a day of shame and sorrow, a President (albeit a figurehead position – it’s not the Prime Minister) goes to prison like a common thug and a rapist to boot – but also a day of pride; a rapist is a rapist is a rapist in the eyes of the law. No-one is treated differently, no matter who you are.
