Benjamin Netanyahu Becomes First Serving Prime Minister To Be Indicted

Nov. 21, 2019 (EIRNS)—Benjamin Netanyahu was indicted this evening, the first serving Israeli Prime Minister ever to be indicted. He is charged with three counts each of fraud and breach of trust, and one count of bribery.

Veteran Israeli journalist Ben Caspit, one of the few who has interviewed Lyndon LaRouche, wrote this evening in Al-Monitor, “Earlier articles here promised a perfect storm encompassing Israel’s political, diplomatic and security establishments. It finally arrived the evening of Nov. 21; Israel is now in the eye of the storm. Anything is possible and all the scenarios are on the table. In the past, Netanyahu rejected suggestions by his lawyers that he give up the fight and strive to reach a plea deal, which could have gotten him off the hook with a symbolic penalty in exchange for having the cases against him closed. But will Netanyahu give up? Will he make his final bow and leave the stage? It doesn’t look like it. The prime minister is the ultimate comeback kid. The man never gives up.”
