Ne­tanyahu rips op­po­si­tion, me­dia over cor­rup­tion case

The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

TEL AVIV | Is­rael’s em­bat­tled prime min­is­ter, Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu, lashed out at the me­dia and his po­lit­i­cal op­po­nents in an an­i­mated speech to hun­dreds of en­thu­si­as­tic sup­port­ers on Wed­nes­day, seek­ing to de­liver a pow­er­ful show of force as he bat­tles a slew of cor­rup­tion al­le­ga­tions that have threat­ened to drive him from of­fice.

Ne­tanyahu’s Likud Party or­ga­nized Wed­nes­day’s rally in re­sponse to a swirling po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion into sus­pected cor­rup­tion, bribery and fraud by the long­time Is­raeli leader.
