(Worthy News) - The trip to Washington comes at a critical time for Netanyahu. He departed Israel on Saturday night, just one day after he and his wife, Sara, were questioned in the expanding Bezeq probe. Police have already recommended charging the prime minister with bribery in two other criminal investigations.
In addition, Netanyahu’s coalition might be on the verge of collapse. Insistence by the Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) parties to pass a Basic Law that would equate Torah study with military service is facing opposition from other members of the government, particularly from Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman.
And while Netanyahu claims he does not want elections, it might actually be in his interest for them to be called now. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
