Netanyahu is strangely confident
Former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said yesterday that he still hopes to regain power, despite losing the last election.
By coincidence, Netanyahu's trial for bribery, fraud and breach of trust resumed yesterday.
Normally someone in that position would be worried about going to jail, not becoming president. So why is Netanyahu so confident?
It turns out that on the exact same day his trial started, and shortly after he spoke about regaining the presidency, one of the prosecutor's star witnesses had an "accident".
Greek authorities are investigating the crash of a private plane from Israel that killed a prosecution witness in Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption trial.
Haim Geron, a former senior official at Israel’s ministry of communications, and his wife Esther were killed when the single-engine Cessna 182 plane crashed late on Monday off the island of Samos.
What an amazing "coincidence".
Netanyahu, now the opposition leader in Israel’s parliament, has denied all accusations and mocked the size of the witness list.
It's easy to mock the size of the witness list when the list is shrinking from unfortunate "accidents".
