Benjamin NetanyahuDespite legal problems, a pro-Israel activist says no one should count Prime Minister Netanyahu out in the upcoming Israeli elections.

The attorney general of Israel has announced that Benjamin Netanyahu will be indicted for charges stemming from three distinct corruption investigations. The timing is suspicious, though, coming just over a month before Israeli citizens go to the polls.

Many analysts believe this could spell the end of an illustrious career, but American Values President Gary Bauer, who has worked with the prime minister for over a decade, is not convinced.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)"He is, from everything I've been able to tell, an honorable man," says Bauer. "I think he's opposed in Israel by some of the same forces that oppose President Trump, and I would not count him out. I believe that he's been very good for the nation of Israel and has been a strong leader that has helped Israel beat back its many enemies in the region that would like to wipe Israel off the map."

And Bauer, whom President Trump appointed to serve on the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, finds it hard to imagine that a left-wing government would be able to form in Israel.

"If the election goes in an unfavorable direction for Prime Minister Netanyahu, I do not assume that that would mean a left-wing government would be formed after the election," he submits.

Bauer points out that like President Trump, Netanyahu has surprised people with election results in the past.
