Israel: Respect from Arabs

From Israel, Yael notes that there is a silver lining to each cloud. She adds: “Among Arab nations, the fact that we are going after Olmert for his corrupt behaviour is winning us a great deal of respect. They are looking at us and saying ‘hey! this is a model to follow –those who engage in corruption, no matter how high they stand, should be held accountable and brought to justice.'”
