On March 31, 2009, Benjamin Netanyahu was sworn in as Prime Minister of Israel.
He nine and half years in office have been filled with as much controversy as the presidency of Donald Trump.
Many have blamed Netanyahu ad his policies for the increased violence between Israel and Palestinians.
Like Trump, Netanyahu’s opponents have spent a lot of time and effort trying to find something or anything they can use to charge him with a crime and remove him from office.
This is the third time that Netanyahu is facing the threat of being indicted for crimes this time, the charges include bribery and corruption.
The Washington Post – Israeli police recommend charging Netanyahu in third corruption case – Israeli police on Sunday recommended indicting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on charges of bribery and corruption in a third case — this time on suspicion that the leader eased business regulations for the country’s largest telecommunications company in exchange for favorable coverage for him and his wife on a popular news website owned by the firm.
Police have also recommended that media mogul Shaul Elovitch — a close friend of Netanyahu and majority shareholder of Bezeq, the telecoms firm that owns the news site Walla — be indicted for his alleged role in the affair. Elovitch’s wife, Iris, and Netanyahu’s wife, Sara, were also implicated in the case, known as Case 4000.
While it is now up to Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit to formally prosecute those involved, Sunday’s announcement ramps up pressure on Netanyahu, who faces a raft of legal woes and who, in coming months, could find himself in the throes of early national elections after the departure last month of a key coalition partner left his government teetering on the edge…
Israel’s liberals will not rest until they have managed to convict Netanyahu of a crime that would justify removing him from office.
Like here in the United States, there is much at stake with keeping or removing Netanyahu.
The liberals attacking Netanyahu, want to return the West Bank and other land conquered by Israel in the 1967 6-Day War, to the Palestinians who constantly attack Israel and kill their citizens.
This includes Israel’s centuries old capital of Jerusalem.
Sounds a lot like the liberals here in America that want to turn our nation over to millions of illegal aliens, doesn’t it?
