Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday brushed off once again the multiple corruption allegations against him, accusing the media and the police of persecuting him on personal grounds.
Addressing thousands of Likud supporters in a Tel Aviv rally ahead of Passover, Netanyahu claimed the level of international support for Israel is on a consistent upswing. “Here are two main reasons for this tremendous support: Our great accomplishments and our ability to stand strong,” he told the cheering crowd.
“But there’s a third reason,” he continued, “and that is the deepening feeling of injustice. Many people, not only among Likud supporters, are hearing what the media is doing to us and feel that the game is rigged, a real witch hunt.”
As the crowd began to boo at the mention of the media, Netanyahu claimed that no other politician had ever been persecuted to this degree. “You know their rule – if it’s not Bibi, they don’t touch it,” he said.
