Is prime minister getting the Trump treatment?

Benjamin NetanyahuThe head of a pro-Israel organization says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is facing the same kind of persecution from forces that want to bring him down as President Donald Trump is here in the United States.

Police have recommended charges be filed against the prime minister for bribery, fraud, and breach of trust.

The Jerusalem Post reports that a 14-month investigation concluded with a recommendation to indict the prime minister for receiving gifts from prominent businessmen and for cooperating with a newspaper to hurt its competitor.

By law Netanyahu could eventually resign but only if he is eventually indicted and a Supreme Court verdict rejects an appeal. 

For Netanyahu, meanwhile, it is business as usual as he attended the Munich Security Conference less than 48 hours after law enforcement authorities made their recommendation. He has scheduled a trip next month to the United States to visit President Trump.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations says the charges against Netanyahu remind her of what has been happening to President Trump.

"Honestly I think this is an attempt to try to remove this man from office just like they're trying to remove Trump," she observes. "And, you know, the Word of God says that God raises up kings and he brings them down. Nobody can touch these leaders. God raised Bibi up for such as a time as this."

Netanyahu's accusers are grasping at straws, she says, adding that there is no evidence that accepting gifts affected his decisions or amounts to illegal activity.
