CrimProf Gross Discusses Israeli President's Speech

Gross_1From Haifa University CrimProf Emanuel Gross recently commented on Israeli President Moshe Katsav delivery of a frantic speech in which he venomously attacked all of Israel's institutions, including the police, attorney general, government and media.

CrimProf Gross told Ynet news he was severely disappointed in Katsav's speech and called it "an unbecoming and even cynical exploitation of his official position to attack law enforcers and the complainants against him without giving them the chance to respond."

Gross said he found it hard to believe he was hearing such a spray of venom from the president's mouth.

"I would have expected him to resign before making such statements. This is a test for the Knesset, a test for democracy. I expect the Knesset to dismiss the president, and that seems obvious."
