America Pays for Netanyahu’s Luxury Trips
The affair known in Israel as “Bibi-Tours” is nearing its end.
Netanyahu was formally interrogated in March; this was the final stage
of the formal investigation. Now everything is ready for issuing a
decision. Israel State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss is expected to
retire before October 2012, the date being subject to the nomination of
his successor by the Knesset. Before retiring, he must issue a final
report on the most important probe of his career. If he concludes that
Netanyahu committed criminal offenses, he will pass his findings on to
the Attorney General and Netanyahu may find himself facing criminal
charges. This is bound to happen in August. In June, his report is
already being prepared; Benjamin Netanyahu has already seen its draft.
Netanyahu’s ominous silence announces an imminent storm.
