Half of Israelis Believe Netanyahu Might be Guilty of Alleged Corruption

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends the weekly cabinet meeting at his office in Jerusalem

"I would like to tell you, citizens of Israel, that I do not heed background noises", he said.

Minister of Transportation and Intelligence Yisrael Katz put out a statement on his Facebook page in support of the prime minister.

Israel's general election is scheduled to be held in 2019.

Israel police recommended that Sara Netanyahu be indicted over a year ago, and officials from the State Attorney's Office recently chose to accept the recommendation. This debate also finds itself among the details of the Case 2000, an investigation against Mr. Netanyahu into charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. They involve officials and businessmen who allegedly profited from Israel's purchase of nuclear submarines from Germany's ThyssenKrupp AG in a deal worth more than $1.5 billion, and accusations that Netanyahu's government gave special treatment to Bezeq Israeli Telecommunication Corp., the country's largest telecommunications company, which is controlled by Netanyahu's friend Shaul Elovitch.

The expected indictment also comes the same day the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that Mr Netanyahu must disclose his phone calls with USA businessman Sheldon Adelson - from whom it is alleged he received lavish gifts.

Brock Holt has since seen time at second base, as has Eduardo Nunez , who was acquired from the San Francisco Giants on July 25. The two teams will meet again for a final six games between September 8 and September 17, and much more could be on the line.

Last week, police requested a gag order on details of their efforts to recruit Mr. Harow as a state witness.

The Netanyahus have repeatedly denied all allegations of wrong-doing made against them.

It is alleged that he received lavish and "inappropriate" gifts from wealthy supporters such as cigars and champagne, and offered commercial favours to Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper owner Arnon Mozes in return for positive coverage. In a second case, Netanyahu is suspected of conspiring with the owner of Israel's Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper to undermine Israel Hayom, a competing free daily backed by USA casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, chairman and majority owner of Las Vegas Sands Corp. That streak, however, might be in jeopardy thanks to a convoluted chain of events that involves two separate corruption investigations, a former confidant who has turned against him, the producer of Pretty Woman, and casino mogul Sheldon Adelson.

The existence of such tapes came to public light in January, first reported by Israel's Channel 2 investigative program.

This has sparked speculation that the prime minister, the second-longest serving leader in Israeli history, could be indicted shortly. "I don't see us going to elections now".
