For Israelis, right or left, Netanyahu’s indictment is sad – editor’s note – Israel News – Jerusalem Post

Thursday, February 28, 2019, will be remembered as a historic day for Israel. A sitting prime minister has been informed – pending a hearing – that he will be indicted. The charges, it is important to keep in mind, are for crimes he allegedly committed as Israel’s leader.Netanyahu’s predecessor, Ehud Olmert, stepped down as prime minister in 2009 and resigned from politics after the initial police recommendation that he be indicted. He ended up being sent to jail, but in contrast to Netanyahu, the crime he was convicted of – taking a $15,000 bribe – was when he was mayor of Jerusalem, years before he became Israel’s prime minister. The indictments against Netanyahu refer to crimes he is suspected of committing over the last few years while serving as Israel’s prime minister.
