Summary of editorials from the Hebrew press 25-Janaury-2007

**Summary of editorials from the Hebrew press 25-Janaury-2007

Haaretz, Yediot Aharonot and Hatzofeh papers discuss various aspects of the controversy surrounding President Moshe Katsav:

Yediot Aharonot believes that the President could have spared both himself and the country much anguish if he had resigned months ago. The editors assert that only someone of high standing, with unimpeachable morals, "can rehabilitate the presidency and rebuild its ruins."

Hatzofeh refers to the President's press conference yesterday and says that the President, "blamed everyone possible - except himself." The editors doubt whether the President's charges of a conspiracy will convince very many people and suggests that he should have resigned months ago.

Haaretz believes that now that the attorney general has decided to indict the president on rape charges, one could have expected the president to announce his resignation immediately. The Knesset does not need to lend a hand to this hypocrisy. If the president has decided not to resign, there is no choice but to oust him.

Yediot Aharonot, in its second editorial, calls for the Justice Ministry and the Bar Association to hold a thorough discussion of lawyers' responsibility toward their clients.

Yediot Aharonot, in its third editorial, refers to a recent case in which a mass murderer, who was out of prison on furlough, caused a deadly traffic accident en route to a holiday in Eilat with his family, and criticizes the fact that he was allowed out of prison at all.

The Jerusalem Posts thinks that what the IDF needs is some good old-fashioned soldiering. With an emboldened Hizbullah on our border, a possible nuclear showdown with Iran looming and the conflict with the Palestinians anything but abated, the incoming chief of General Staff will face extraordinary tests. The vision, priorities and culture he carves out for the IDF will be central to Israel's well-being these next few years.

[Eitan Haber and Nitzan Keidar wrote today's editorials in Yediot Aharonot and Hatzofeh, respectively.]
