  1. Having worked in the courts in the US for many years I find it very odd that any judge, while knowing that a person involved in a court case has legal counsel, would allow that person to make a pro se motion in court – and that the judge would render a decision on it. This is highly unusual for any ethical judge to do, even if for some reason the person waived his right to have his attorney present. From the information issued in the press release, I can make no sense of it, either. Why sit in jail for a week, fighting for your right to remain in Israel and do your job, and then suddenly throw in the towel and decide to leave? Malsin must know that he will never be allowed back into Israel, and so he had nothing to lose by seeing this through to the end.

    This is eerie banana republic stuff – opaque, obtuse and very unnerving.
