Defense Minister Ehud Barak spoke with Supreme Court President, Dorit Beinisch and inquired as to her condition following the assault perpetrated on the her Wednesday morning.


Barak, following his return to Israel from from a meeting with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak at Sharm e-Sheikh, condemned the attack on the country's chief magistrate.


Beinisch was lightly wounded Wednesday morning when a 52-year-old man with a criminal record threw two of his sneakers at the chief justice as she presided over a court hearing – striking her in the face with the first shoe and knocking her off her chair as the second whizzed past.
