JERUSALEM, Israel – Tuesday’s announcement by Israel Police recommending that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu be indicted on bribery and breach of trust charges came as no surprise to many in Israel. The speculation of a possible indictment had been in the news for more than a year.

Responses by politicians on the right, left and center fell along party lines. Members of Netanyahu’s coalition supported him, while the opposition parties did not.

…”The despicable move to carry out a coup against the will of the voter was revealed tonight,” Yariv said. “It is a disgrace that the main witness against Prime Minister Netanyahu is the politician Yair Lapid, who has been trying to replace him for years.”

“Over the past year, as the police investigations dragged on, investigators fed the media with a never-ending stream of negative leaks that all disparaged and vilified Netanyahu.”

According to Glick, during an hour-long television interview last week, Police Commissioner Roni Alscheich “made clear that he has a personal vendetta against Netanyahu and is prepared to overthrow his government.”
