Israel's Attorney General has secured an indictment of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for bribery and fraud. --Bob

Some BBs may not know that in Israel, Attorney General is a separate position from Minister of Justice.

That's lucky, because the Minister of Justice is so right-wing that Bibi is a socialist compared to her. This is an actual campaign ad released today by the actual Justice Minister, not a comedian spoofing her.

Bibi proposed a law to shield government leaders from prosecution. But first he had to form a coalition. He made concessions to the ultra-Orthodox parties, but some secular Knesset members wouldn’t accept them. The deadline, midnight Wednesday, has now passed.

There are other parties who would be willing to join Likud, but not with a corrupt criminal at the head. Likud still has the option of forming a government with a different leader. Otherwise there will be a new election Sept. 17.

By the way, previous Israeli presidents and prime ministers have been convicted of crimes ranging from having an unauthorized foreign bank account to rape. Some have gone to jail.

This was immediately after he ran for re-election promising not to seek such a law. No wonder he and Donny get along so well. --Bob

Sara Netanyahu is pleading guilty to ordering expensive takeout even though the PM’s residence has a cook. Not the crime of the century but at least she owned up to it.

A staffer was criticized in January for calling Sara the “first lady.” Not only does that title not exist in Israel, but it disses the president’s wife Nechama Rivlin, who’s as beloved as Sara is reviled. Nechama passed away last week after a long illness.
