News about a Benjamin Netanyahu ‘arrest’ is spreading worldwide. Israel’s long-serving prime minster — a strong ally to the United States — has received notice. This is stunning.
Netanyahu just won his party’s nomination with 72.5% of the vote. He now has a chance at avoiding trial for alleged “bribery” and “corruption,” if he goes on to win the general election in March.
Netanyahu took to his Twitter account to celebrate the victory. “Thank you Likud members for the vote of confidence, support and love,” he said. “God willing and with your help, I will lead the Likud to a great victory in the upcoming elections.”
From the beginning, he has called the accusations against him a political “witch-hunt,” echoing the words of President Trump as Democrats have tried to oust him and undo the 2016 election.
But Trump won’t be defeated and neither will Netanyahu. Career politicians hate these two leaders because they upset the established way of doing things — they work hard to put the people first.
