"Former President Moshe Katsav began a seven-year prison sentence on Wednesday, following his conviction of two counts of rape and other sexual offenses.
The former president was accompanied by family members, entering the Ma'asiyahu facility at 10:08 A.M.
Prior to arriving at the central-Israel prison, Katsav addressed media representatives outside his Kirayt Malakhi home, where he accused the court of wrongly convicting him, saying that in Israel "a man is executed today without proof or evidence."
"A man is executed today because the court chose not to believe 20 real-time witnesses, instead taking the word of 20 witnesses speaking after the fact," the former president said, adding: "One day you'll see that you have buried a man alive."
"Proof for my future acquittal already awaits within my appeal documents," Katsav added."
All I said was that this poster is generally on top of this sort of story, which, I think is pretty evidently true.
Edit to add:
The poster to whom I replied denied that this was true and asked for evidence, so I provided it.
There are certain topics that I am pretty on top of myself. Like whenever Hamas does something unpleasant, I usually manage to post an article about it. Wouldn't bother me if someone pointed out that I was on top of Hamas behaving badly (as folks have, some less politely than others).
