Netanyahu Is No Victim

4 2 0

At the conclusion of Benjamin Netanyahu’s last round of questioning by police in Case 4000 (August 2018), the prime minister apparently felt a need to take his leave of the investigators. He sounded very far from the man who tried to etch in the public awareness the concept of “investigating the investigators.” “I have no complaints,” he told the investigators. “You’re doing your job.” We’re trying to do it in a fair and professional manner, replied the investigator.

“I really have no complaints,” Netanyahu repeated, “I have other complaints. They aren’t …” If it’s related to the investigation we’ll be happy to hear. Netanyahu clarified for a third time: “No, look I’ll tell you. I think that there’s a very serious problem in the State of Israel, that we have media concentration that doesn’t exist in the Western world.” From here it continued with the same familiar, endless monologue.

A gift in the guise of media coverage really is very unusual on the criminal landscape. It may be a precedent. On the other hand........
