Israel's sanctions heaped on former leaders of Israel

Months or weeks ago were sentenced to prison terms one of the former heads of Israel

And now a new provision against former Israeli Prime Minister

Is this evidence of the rule of justice and equality for everyone, without exception, in Israel?
The question we ask here

But there is considerable uncertainty about this

Israel, which occupies Arab land and kill Palestinian children in Gaza where no justice

Israel does not justice

This fact mentioned here without hesitation

The District Court ruled on Monday former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was sentenced to one year probation and fined $ 75 thousand shekels in the Investment Center case where previously convicted breach of trust.

The court rejected the request of the public prosecutor, judge Olmert to work in public service for a period of six months.

On the other hand the three judges of the Tribunal rejected characterization of the crime as "congenital corruption," a characterization that would have kept Olmert in prison for a long time and prevented him from returning to work.
But what he said former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert?

Said former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told reporters without commenting on his plans "out of the courtroom today with my head held high."

After his conviction, said Olmert, who denies committing any crime that he has no intention of doing politics again.

Under know former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert led Kadima, which was led by Olmert now in the face of opposition Likud party, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
