Benjamin NetanyahuIsrael’s longtime prime minister appears to be in legal troubles over bribery accusations but a U.S. supporter of Benjamin Netanyahu says there is a “deep state” at work in Israel, too.

After months of accusations and investigations, Israel's attorney general has formally charged Netanyahu in a series of corruption cases including fraud, breach of trust, and accepting bribes in three different scandals. It marks the first time a sitting Israeli prime minister has been charged with a crime.

The accusations against Netanyahu come as Democratic lawmakers wrap up their impeachment hearings and move toward a vote to impeach President Trump.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, says the parallels are “uncanny” and she suspects both leaders are being targeted because they are “non-globalist” leaders.  

“And what would be known as Israel's deep state, they have one just like America has a deep state,” Markell warns. “Members of both deep states are trying to get rid of these two nationalist leaders."

Netanyahu's enemies may succeed, Markell predicts, and he may not be prime minister much longer which would create troubles for the country.

“That is not a good situation,” she says.
