THOUSANDS MARCH IN TEL AVIV TO PROTEST AGAINST NETANYAHU, CORRUPTION, AGAIN

Thousands of Israelis protested in Tel Aviv on Saturday for the second consecutive week against government corruption and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is under criminal investigation over allegations of abuse of office.

Police estimated the number of demonstrators at about 10,000 and they followed last Saturday’s demonstration, which was by far the largest of the recent weekly anti-corruption protests when an estimated 20,000 people participated.

The protests have been sparked by corruption allegations against Netanyahu, who denies any wrongdoing. The four-term leader is suspected of involvement in two cases.

The first involves receiving gifts from wealthy businessmen and the second involves negotiating a deal with a newspaper owner for better coverage in return for curbs on a rival daily.

If charged, he would come under heavy pressure to resign or could call an election to test whether he still had a mandate to govern.

Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party said in a Facebook post that the protest was a left-wing demonstration. It called on all Israelis to back their prime minister as he defends Israel against international criticism following US President Donald Trump’s announcement of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu does not care about his alleged "mandate to govern"; all he cares about is military power, and is obsessed with "legacy", whatever that means to him.

IF there is a "snap election" in Israel, expect it to be more crooked than is a dog's hind leg, in order to keep him in power.

Massive election-rigging is not a totally American process.
