sharon's burial

No, the PM isn't dead yet. Here's to hoping he lasts a long time. I'm not sure what the point of Omri's 6 months suspended sentence is. What's going to happen in 6 months when the PM takes a turn for the worse? Wouldn't it make more sense to put him in jail now and let him out to visit his dad twice a week. They could let him out for the funeral, if that happened during his 9 months in jail. I would even be happy to let him sit the shiva before returning to jail, as long as they added 7 more days on to his sentence.

Speaking of the PM's burial, Noam Federman got some publicity in todays English ynet. He send a letter froma concerned citizen asking the health department to ensure that the prime minister is not buried illegally. Apparantly, the PM buried his wife illegally in a nature reserve and is planning on lying next to her after he's gone.
When he appaled to the court to exhume Lily's body and move it to somewhere legal, the court turned him down with the explanation that he was correct, but she was already buried, so it is too late. That is a ridiculous explanation. Can you imagine the court saying it was too late if you or I had been buried illegally? The Israeli Police Grave Digging section would be out the next morning, and probably spit on the dead people as well.

This appeal against the prime ministers stated intentions to commit a crime after his demise was done correctly. If he waited until after the PM died, his appeal would have gone unanswered. Now there is an opportunity for them to make other plans before they need to announce them to the world.

If ynet posted it, then it must be newsworthy.

At my questioning session, I'll make sure to ask if there's a 5th amendment in the new constitution that they are trying to destroy us with.
