If you have never read anything about Israel or its government, you would probably be very surprised…maybe even shocked…to hear that their government is almost evenly split between Leftists and Centrist/Moderates. Just like here in the United States, the Jewish government is full of Leftists calling everything that Israel does and all actions taken by its prime minister as racist, bellicose, terroristic, unfair, greedy and mean-spirited.
At the same time, the other side of the ticket is pretty much a carbon-copy of our RINOs here in the Swamp. They are the spineless Moderates who are content in their luxury jobs and their luxury salaries and would like nothing better than for Benjamin Netanyahu to shut up or get out.
If you didn’t know any better, you’d think we were talking about Trump. However, that’s exactly what is going on other there in Tel Aviv. The same people here who are responsible for the Russia-collusion witch hunt are the same people there who are responsible for the Sara Netanyahu misuse of funds political football. Sara is the wife of the prime minister and, while it’s not a done deal yet, the Netanyahu family is currently under an attack from all directions that rivals the Trump onslaught by the Leftist media.
Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit will indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife Sara for diverting public money to her private housekeeping expenses to the tune of hundreds of thousands of shekels in state funds, Channel 2 reported on Monday.
Police charged Mrs. Netanyahu with using state funds to pay for her late father’s caregiver, in addition to splurging on expensive meals at the Prime Minister’s Residence, employing an electrician for private jobs and purchasing garden furniture for the Netanyahus’ home in Caesarea.
Sara Netanyahu’s attorney, Yossi Cohen, said in response to the allegations: “If the reports are correct, we are talking about ridiculous allegations. How far will the persecution of the Netanyahu family go? Until the cup of tea that an employee of the residence gave Mrs. Netanyahu’s 97-year-old father on his deathbed while he lived there?”
Police suspect the Netanyahus of ordering NIS 11,000 ($3,050) worth of food to the Prime Minister’s Residence – which employs an in-house chef – despite receipts which show the food to have been purchased for the Prime Minister’s Office, Channel 10 reported.
The Netanyahu family issued the following response: “Yair Netanyahu [the eldest son] is vegetarian, Avner [the younger son] and Mrs. Netanyahu almost never eat meat, and the prime minister does not consume food worth thousands of shekels from a steak house. It would be interesting to find out the housekeeper’s part in these orders from 2011.”
Officials from the State Attorney’s Office recently decided to accept an indictment recommendation made by police in May 2016.
The Ministry of Justice stated, “We wish to clarify that at this stage, the Attorney General’s decision has yet to be made. When such a decision will be made, in addition to the added investigations as per the attorney general’s requests, a public announcement will be made.”
You can tell by the tone of the Ministry of Justice that this situation seems to be strongly reminiscent of the Trump-Russia-collusion affair where they know that they don’t have anything, but yet are cryptic and loathe to admit that they are just “trumping up the charges” against the Netanyahus.
I cannot stress enough the severity of the cause against this prime minister the likes of which is going on here in this country. The media there is identical to the media here which is identical to the media all over the world. It’s Leftist, it’s corrupt, and it’s biased and intellectually dishonest. There are no two ways about it. We’ll see how this pans out, but it does appear to be just another Left-Wing witch hunt.
