Moshe Katsev, former President of Israel, has been convicted of the sexual assault of two women. I would not be surprised if Julian Assange, whose legal troubles involve being accused of rape by two women, is looking at this case with anxiety. The important issue is that Katsev and his accusers got the opportunity to present their cases in court and that political influence was not enough to keep Katsev from being held legally responsible for what are said to have been his actions. That being said, I do not claim to know what actually happened between Katsev and these women, but I do know that it is all unfortunate.
