Minister-without-Portfolio Tzahi Hanegbi lashed out at Attorney-General Menachem Mazuz's attempts to force him to quit the cabinet in speech delivered on Sunday at a Rishon Lezion high school. Asked by a student whether his behavior set a good example for youth, Hanegbi compared himself to a student accused of cheating who was expelled from school before being given a chance to present his side of the story. "I ask you not to judge me prematurely," Hanegbi said. "Lately it's been in fashion to judge people before they are brought to trial. This is wrong and the attorney-general should be fighting to defend the law. His view is certainly unfortunate, but the dispute between us will be settled in a proper forum."
