  1. Was prepared to be outraged over an injustice but I mean thats kinda on her… Lucky she wasnt in Singapore where drug offenses can be met with the death penalty

  2. If it’s illegal to bring drugs to a country, then don’t bring drugs to that country.

  3. Smuggle contraband, get caught, pay price

    > Russian prosecutors are seeking to jail an Israeli woman for up to eight years after 9.6 grams of hashish were found to be in her possession while she traveled through the Moscow airport in April.

    > Issachar's lawyer, Alexander Tayus, said: "I believe that they must acquit Naama who is accused of smuggling and give her a punishment for drug possession, which is in the framework of the six months she has already sat in jail. If the court finds Naama guilty of smuggling, it would create a dangerous precedent.”

    > Israel's Foreign Ministry stated that "From the moment Naama Issachar's arrest at the airport in Moscow became known, the Israeli Consulate in Moscow and the department for Israelis abroad have been in touch with Naama and her family and are providing consular-humanitarian services, as is customary with regard to detainees and prisoners under the Vienna Convention.”
