"A French court on Tuesday sentenced Russian-born Israeli mogul Arcadi Gaydamak, who is also a French citizen, to six years in prison and a five million euro fine for his role in illegal arms deals in the 1990s."I'm sure you've heard the saying that if something sounds "too good to be true, that's probably the case." I guess that is a good description of Gaydamak's "contribution" to Israel.

What Ever Happened to...? Arkady Gaydamak
It was only yesterday, when it looked like Arkady Gaydamak would be taking over Israel. He had bought the hearts of many Israelis by rescuing them from Arab terrorist missiles, hosting great massive parties, supporting cult-like sports clubs. Then he disappeared. Rumors of serious legal problems spread. And apparently the rumors were true, because now he's jailed in France.
