The Guardian published an article on the organised crime war in the Israeli city of Ashkelon, and the reputed mob boss Shalom Domrani. Speaking in his defence were “a mother and her daughter whose family provide legal services to Domrani”: “He helps the poorer people.” His people bring vegetables, she said.
Fair enough. But then the report asked why the police were investigating him.
“Well, he is a criminal,” the mother said. “He’s just not responsible for everything that people say he is.”
You just can’t put a price on that kind of advocacy…
