Edelstein: Knesset immunity committee now would be “a bad mistake”

Knesset Speaker Yulli Edelstein said on Sunday that convening a Knesset committee to debate Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s application for immunity from prosecution would be a bad mistake. It would be “a jungle for unbridled election propaganda, a quasi-judicial body conducting a toxic procedure, to which I refuse to lend a hand,” he said. “I therefore disagree with the opinion offered by the Knesset Legal Adviser, Eyal Yinon, that I am obliged to convene the committee,” the Speaker  said. While rejecting the threat by the Kahol Lavan opposition party to sack him as Speaker if he failed to convene the committee, he refrained from stating his decision. He has a fortnight to make a decision.

    Israel should be ashamed betraying its great defender, who averted the immediate Iran threat to destroy Israel. An Israel without principles will not survive

    The only reason it would be a ‘bad mistake’ to this minion is it would stop the Netanyahu-Neocon War on Iran

    Stopping the Netanyahu-Neocon War on Iran is guaranteed by a quick 65 plus MK thumbs down vote on Netanyahu ASAP, then summary prosecution with a parade of billionaire witnesses trying to stay out of prison

        All the facts are known, the prosecution should be lickety split but it’s important that Netanyahu is toppled before Trump is toppled, we want Trump falling ON TOP of Bibi, to prevent the expected Netanyahu squirming
