Netanyahu has until Wednesday midnight to ask for Knesset immunity

Speculation was rife over whether Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will apply to the Knesset by the end of the day for immunity from prosecution in the three cases filed against him. The original Basic Law gave elected lawmakers automatic immunity so long as they were in office. A 2005 amendment, however, requires a Knesset member under indictment to apply for immunity. Netanyahu can’t count on a majority of members for granting his appeal. But since the House Committee cannot be convened for this purpose in the outgoing Knesset, the appeal in itself would delay the legal process against the prime minister for months. During that time, Netanyahu could lead his Likud party’s campaign for re-election on March 3.

    Despite his handicaps, which include wife Sara, Son Yair, Acting Health Minister Litzman, There has never been anyone apart from Hertzel who achieved SO much for the Jewish State. Today there is no one within a very long way who is anywhere near his abilities, skill set, relationships, Ayelet Shaked could be groomed over the next 5 years to succeed, but Sara Netanyahu forbad her joining Likud. Sara is Jealous , and thinks being nutty that she is too fat and old to compete with Ayelet, a happily married mother ,, Netanyahu should bring Shaked into his Party to show clear succession ; He can divorce Sara if she stands in the way.

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
    And all of adelson’s horses
    And all of Saban’s men and Hillary, couldn’t put Kahanist Israel together again

    It’s like one of those John Bolton scenarios where you kick in the Netanyahu door and the whole rotten building collapses – Israeli apartheid, Netanyahu, and Kahanism in toto, all because they believe that Netanyahu lie that no matter what he would get the war on Iran – and now he’s failed and all this is a rear guard show

    Netanyahu and the neocons (like Max Boot) are clear and present danger to America and American politicians need to come out immediately and stop their drive for war on Iran

      Netanyahu and neocons need a war on Iran to prevent the collapse of Israeli apartheid along with the ongoing collapse of Netanyahu
