Quote of the Day

Every day I request assistance from clerks and ministers in order to find ways to help citizens of Israel. That is exactly what Rav Litzman did, and for that they are attacking him. You don't think Rav Litzman is stupid, do you?  This is a serious precedent, like in Sodom... At the end of the day nothing will come from these police recommendations for an indictment. The problem is that they are setting a new bar for public servants not being able to assist the public..

  -- MK Yisroel Eichler (UTJ), regarding the announcement of the police recommendation to indict Deputy Minister Yaakov Litzman for breach of trust and some other matters regarding some of the cases he was being investigated for (some of the cases were closed).

Some of the other responses were reasonable - expressing hope and expectation that Litzman will be found innocent, and the like. Eichler convolutes everything, as usual, as if Litzman is being prosecuted for helping people. The potential indictment is not for helping people but for allegedly using his power and influence in an illegal way to change professional opinions and approaches to help people Litzman wrongly wanted to help.

  1. If I ever stop voting for UTJ, it will be because of Eichler....

  2. I don't want ministers helping people.

    I can never understand "I hope he's innocent" statements. If he is, he is, and if he isn't, he isn't.
