Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu to be indicted on corruption charges

Quote:
(CNN) Jerusalem - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust arising from three separate corruption investigations, pending a hearing, according to a source with direct knowledge of the decision by Israel's attorney general, in a major blow to Netanyahu as he seeks a fifth term in office.

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit's intention to indict the Prime Minister so close to April's general election marks a dramatic moment in Israeli politics.
Netanyahu's opponents will likely look to exploit a heightened sense of damage to the Prime Minister's reputation, while his coalition partners must now decide whether to support a leader who looks set to be indicted, or withdraw their support and risk alienating their shared right-wing voter base.

Oy vey, an independent judiciary is such a pain.

I think the term Gonif applies....

I really hope this is the beginning of Bibi,who has been a disaster for Israel.
He has managed to alienate a good deal of the American Jewish Community .a remarkable acheivment for an Israeli PM.

I'd rather see things move faster in the US. This drama in Israel will take years to unfold.

And I have always despised Netheyanu for his endless explotation of his dead brother, a genuine Israeli hero.
He was killed leading the Entebbe raid.
