Netanyahu should be on trial at the Hague for war crimes, but I guess an indictment on corruption charges will have to do. After all, they got Al Capone on tax evasion. But let's be clear about this. Netanyahu isn't the real problem. Zionist supremacy is the real problem. Israeli apartheid didn't begin with Netanayahu, nor will it end if he goes to prison.

no one in Israel was above the law.

This is an era when so many corrupt despots around the globe are using the power of their positions for personal gain. No wonder so many of them are trying to undermine democracies that have laws that provide some protection limiting their powers.

Kleptocracy  is a government with corrupt leaders (kleptocrats) that use their power to exploit the people and natural resources of their own territory in order to extend their personal wealth

Why? I think most of Hamas and it’s Proxies should be charged with war crimes.

Why do liberals take pleasure over someone’s misfortune?

Al Capone??... Anyway, this could strengthen Bibi’s hand as it has Trump’s over here. He should survive this easily.

Why?

Because hems committed war crimes.

I think most of Hamas and it’s Proxies should be charged with war crimes.

Agreed, but this doesn't alleviate Netanyahu from the war crimes he's committed. You obviously think that two wrongs make a right. Weird.

Why do liberals take pleasure over someone’s misfortune?

We don't. Misfortune is being unlucky, Netanyahu was corrupt. We take pleasure in corrupt people being brought to justice.

Al Capone??... Anyway, this could strengthen Bibi’s hand as it has Trump’s over here. He should survive this easily

Neither Donny or Bibi are in Japan.

Netanyahu can be like a snake wiggling to try and hold onto power with two failed general elections and unable to form a government becomes the first sitting prime minister to be criminally charged. His wife was already found guilty.

Why do liberals take pleasure over someone’s misfortune?

Being caught for criminal actions is much more than misfortune. Funny remark from someone like you.
