Elan asked, Are you sure?

I'm sure that's what's being reported.

Okay, fair enough. I just hadn't heard that an official warrant has been issued.

Elan, since that article says it's been widely covered in the Israeli media, perhaps you can look there for more info?

Yes, you don't know how widely. Since one abuse story came out perhaps a couple of weeks ago, there has been a slew of such stories. They are all over the news. It seems that the publicity has brought police and child protective services in Israel to respond much more aggressively. Cases that were largely ignored, some for years, have suddenly been exposed publicly with the police making arrests and the media going into a frenzy. It seems that every police precinct is now trying to find its own cases to get the publicity, which will be to the benefit of many abused children.

But maybe it will die down soon, because a new tent went up today at the Israeli media circus. Moshe Katzav, Israel's former president, came before the court today and rejected his own plea agreement in his sexual abuse trial. He will probably be formally charged with rape in the coming weeks.
