His case is a sad one. He was a high-ranking Israeli leader until very recently, when he was found guilty of rape. People said that he no longer had the moral authority to hold public office. He lost all of his powerful friends and his family has shunned him, including his wife.
Unfortunately, he is now in jail. He is begging the Israeli government for a pardon on his sentence. He wants to come out of jail so that he can be a politician again. Many Israelis still respect him, and he is counting on that when he comes out.
I know rape is a very bad thing but you have to feel sorry for someone who absolutely lost everything because of an accusation and verdict. This guy totally lost everythig, and even God hates him now.
