    Can I say that Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's mouth is only good for Netanyahu's cock holster?

    As you might expect. People who hate him are happy and can't wait for him to be hauled off. People who love him think it's wrong, but not that big a deal and maybe he has to pay a fine.

    So the police have said he should be indicted. Now the Attorney General has to look at all the evidence and decide what to do. This could drag out for another year. We shall see.

    The issue is that Netanyahu is fairly popular and there is no heir apparent. I don't see him going anyplace in the short term.

    Update.

    Things have gotten more serious for Netanyahu as a new case (Case 4000; so weird, Case 1000, Case 2000, etc. What is with this numbering system?) is being pursued and three aides are cooperating with the police on this one. This is the most serious one of the bunch as Bibi is accused of directing favorable regulatory handling for Bezeq telecom company in return for favorable press coverage by Israel's Channel 2 (owned by the same Bezeq owner). It is more serious because three former Bibi underlings are ready to turn state's evidence on him. And just last week they interviewed Bibi and his wife separately (him in Tel Aviv and her in Jerusalem) at the same time on the case to prevent them from coordinating each other's stories.

    It has Bibi thinking about calling new elections as his numbers remain fairly high. He did get the U.S. to move the embassy to Jerusalem after all. He could get another win in before possible indictments.

    But even if he's gone, it may not matter.

    Israel Contemplates a Future Without Netanyahu

    If there is a signature achievement to Benjamin Netanyahu’s decade in power, it may be the hollowing out of political debate in Israel. For much of the country’s history, the public has been split into two prevailing world views: those who stress historic rights—who see the Biblical Land of Israel as covering the entire area between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River—and those who believe in civil rights, arguing that the occupation of another people is not only unsustainable but unconscionable. The left reigned exclusively from 1948 until 1977; the right has ruled for most of the past four decades. But both camps used to have more or less equal numbers. Not anymore. Only eight per cent of Israeli Jews now define themselves as left wing; thirty-seven per cent identify with the right, and fifty-five per cent with the center. And just what “the center” means has changed, too: it is now considered a legitimate position to support the expulsion or transfer of Arabs from Israel. In fact, forty-eight per cent of Jewish Israelis support the idea, compared with forty-six per cent who don’t, according to a Pew Research poll from 2016.

    Yeah, I don't know how that question was asked.

    It likely reflects the views of people that have grown up under the real threat of attacks by Palestinians and who have no memory of earlier times when relations were better. Also, the ultrorthodox population is growing and I would think their views would be fairly straightforward on who has rights to the land and how to resolve that. But I'm just guessing here.
