Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is hit with new indictments while visiting US President Trump at the White House this week; These new indictments are highly questionable and suspect and are said to be for’ bribery, fraud, and breach of trust’.
While visiting the White House and being present for Trump’s unveiling of ‘The Deal of the Century’, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was “spontaneously” hit with a new indictment from Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit for ‘bribery, fraud, and breach of trust’.
These new charges come at a highly controversial time with the Israeli national election on the horizon in early March. There certainly appears to be an agenda to cast a very bad light on the Likud Party’s frontrunner at just the right time. This indictment is being met with significant opposition, and rightfully so, from those close to the prime minister, who believe this to be nothing more than a political ‘witch hunt’. One person close to Netanyahu stated, “If anyone still had any doubt that Prime Minister Netanyahu is the target of obsessive persecution, he was now given further clear and sharp proof. The eagerness to file the unfounded indictment against the prime minister is so great that they could not wait even one day until after the historic summit in Washington, one of the most important in the history of the state.”
After Netanyahu withdrew his request for immunity is when this indictment announcement was made public. He would report his withdrawal of request for immunity saying that “During this fateful time for the people of Israel, while I am in the US on a historic mission to shape Israel’s permanent borders and ensure our security for future generations, another Knesset episode is expected to begin in the immunity circus. Since I was not given due process, because all the rules of the Knesset were trampled on, and since the results of the procedure were pre-dictated without proper discussion, I decided not to allow this dirty game to continue.”
Netanyahu’s primary opponent, Benny Gantz, took no time to dish out an inaccurate and irrational statement, stating, “Netanyahu is going to trial — we must move forward. Israel’s citizens have a clear choice: A prime minister who will work for them or a prime minister working for himself. No one can run a state and at the same time manage three serious criminal cases for bribery, fraud and breach of trust.”
There are some quite revealing parallels between the circumstances of both Netanyahu and Trump. It’s what makes these two world leaders different than the rest that has put them in their current situations. Both believe in doing what’s best for their own countries first rather than selling-out to the world. Netanyahu is being indicted for reasons that are quite unexplainable and Trump has been impeached without a crime. Neither of them has been given due process.
