Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Faces Criminal Investigation For Fraud & Bribery

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Lance Schuttler via,

The Times of Israel is reporting that police are calling on Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit to allow them to open a full criminal investigation against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.


On Monday, December 26th, Israeli police announced that they are absolutely convinced that a criminal investigation will be opened in the next few days due to new documents that were recently received in a special inquiry that began about 9 months ago.

The offenses that Netanyahu allegedly will face will be bribery and aggravated-fraud. In June it was reported that police had recently started their secret investigation, with demand that no details be leaked to the media.

Attorney General Mandelblit also allegedly instructed employees in the state prosecutor’s office to investigate allegations that Netanyahu accepted 1 million euros (about $1.1 million) from accused French fraudster Arnaud Mimran in 2009.

Earlier in December, in an apparently unrelated case, there were calls for the Netanyahu to be investigated for his role in a Defense Ministry deal to purchase submarines from a German company that is partly owned by the Iranian government.

The affair overtook public debate in Israel last month, as accusations came about that the Israeli prime minister may have been financially swayed in the decision by his personal counsel David Shimron, who himself had ties with the submarines’ builder, ThyssenKrupp. The purchase was opposed by sectors of the defense establishment, including former defense minister Moshe Ya’alon.

A spokesman for Netanyahu defended the Prime Minister by telling The Times of Israel, “This is absolutely false. There was nothing and there will be nothing.”

What is most interesting about this news is the possible correlation with the U.S. decision to abstain from the vote in the United Nations that aims to stop Israeli construction on occupied Palestinian territory. While it only makes logical and legal sense for such construction to be halted, the U.S. decision not to support Israel is a public slap in the face and one that comes at a time where it also makes sense to ask a logical question: Does the U.S. know something about Netanyahu’s investigation and possible crimes and are they now seeking to publicly separate themselves from the controversial Israeli Prime Minister?

However, speculation that Netanyahu has been deeply involved in corruption, bribery and even war crimes have been circulating for years and if indeed true, won’t surprise many.

Will “Bibi” slide away from this scandal unscathed or will this result in criminal charges? What changes might this possible criminal investigation have on the dynamic between Netanyahu and incoming U.S. President Donald Trump? If investigated, will Trump come to the defense of Bibi, or will Trump begin to distance himself as well? This one could get really interesting to watch.

Before zionazi Nethanyahu goes, I want to know how he knew that WTC tower went down with a 350 ton bomb?

MoSSad intel?:

Trump, “The America We Deserve,” January 2000: Instead of one looming crisis hanging over us, we face a bewildering series of smaller crises, flash points, standoffs, and hot spots. We’re not playing the chess game to end all chess games anymore. We’re playing tournament chess — one master against many rivals. One day we’re all assured that Iraq is under control, the UN inspectors have done their work, everything’s fine, not to worry. The next day the bombing begins. One day we’re told that a shadowy figure with no fixed address named Osama bin-Laden is public enemy number one, and U.S. jetfighters lay waste to his camp in Afghanistan. He escapes back under some rock, and a few news cycles later it’s on to a new enemy and new crisis.

WTF how did he know what size bomb it was?! /s

Clinton, Aug. 22, 1998: Our goals were to disrupt bin Ladin’s terrorist network and destroy elements of its infrastructure in Afghanistan and Sudan. And our goal was to destroy, in Sudan, the factory with which bin Ladin’s network is associated, which was producing an ingredient essential for nerve gas.

Don't worry, Bibi. Be patient. Come Jan 20th, someone blind will save you.

Always look at the timing.  This has BO's fingers all over it just like the Wookie's hindend.



beemasters's picture

BO is trying to distance the US from Bibi/Israel. They knew this was going to happen. There were earlier signs/news already Bibi was corrupt. Trump was just naive and uninformed, plus too careless with his tweets.

"Earlier in December, in an apparently unrelated case, there were calls for the Netanyahu to be investigated for his role in a Defense Ministry deal to purchase submarines from a German company that is partly owned by the Iranian government."

Iranian or not, doesn't it seem a little strange that Netanyahu would be buying expensive military shit from the Germans. Isn't he always telling us to remember the Holocaust? Well, this may be his rational.

"Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sparked public uproar when on Tuesday he claimed that the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, was the one who planted the idea of the extermination of European Jewry in Adolf Hitler's mind. The Nazi ruler, Netanyahu said, had no intention of killing the Jews, but only to expel them."

Eastern 'Lebensraum' for ISISrael...NAZI Germany had similar ambitions...

“After Rabin died, our path to the future was clearer than it ever was before,” activist Daniella Weiss tells Updike and Ephron. “We won the land, and we won the politics.” For 40 years, Weiss has been a vocal proponent of expanding settlements.

In 1975, when Rabin was prime minister for the first time, he opposed the settlements, famously calling them a “cancer in the tissue of Israel’s democratic society.” Then, Weiss was on the fringe of Israeli society. At a campaign rally before the recent elections, she introduced Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

plenty of insiders - in fact, it was literally minutes after the towers dustified that Osama was presented to the US public as the perp.

I learned of the event via radio - I turned on the radio to the station that carried Howard Stern, and he was bellowing in a belicose manner, that Osama Bin Laden did it.

Stern was an insider on this.  He was given contracts for tens of millions after that.  Obviously he was given a script to react to the event.


  as an aside, BabaBooey died at 49 years old the other day.

After researching 9/11 for years I dont believe it ws a bomb or bombs. 

This explaination is very plausable.. They turned to dust, there was nothing left of them right after they started falling.

Oh yeah this news on the Devil,, is great news.. just a start though..

It's straight-forward ANTI-SEMITISM i tell you!!!

It's not true anyway - it's fake news. No jew EVER has been involved in ANY corruption of ANY sort ESPECIALLY when it comes to financial transactions involving pensions for old ladies (or KEvin Bacon). This is something a juw would never do.

Jews also DO NOT suck foreskins off their babies using their mouths.. LOL They DO NOT do this.

Here is some fake news, which I think you'll agree, DEFINITIVELY proves that they do not do this (....because it's fake you see, it PROVES the opposite <- Joologic - confused yet? Well that isn't was but kill hasn't yourself never not goy been our un-intention) :

King David did NOT send that soldier into the front ranks of the battle so he would be killed so King David could screw his wife.  Jews just don't DO things like that.  Watch your Hollywood Movies, people!

i remember years ago when i was just a wee cousin chopchop and bibi visited my bulge-bracket firms fixed income trading firm. i couldn't understand why an israeli politician would care about wall street finance. aah. the blissful dream of ignorance.

SoDamnMad's picture

Mindboggling.  Bibi buys German submarine(s) with kickback from large German firm selling them modern arms. Isreal continues to prey of German guilt from WWII.  Submarine profits split to Iran who funds Hezbellah who shoots rocket into Israel.

Bibi condemns US part in Iran peace deal. Peace deal is to stop and block Iranian work on nuclear weapons.  Israel has nuclear weapons thanks to theft of US technology.  

OK, whose on first, second and third base and what team are we playing anyway?

Kosher Mafiya owns Bonn since inception, has controlled Iran(with various ups n downs)since 1979, influences every decision in Moscow/Beijing, and has just completed it's biggest heist ever, in acquiring total ownership of USA/LLC.

And folks are surprised when the dirty laundry surfaces at some point in the cycle?

This is a fight over spoils.... not corruption.

To the winner goes

just the tip's picture

my first thought on this went to the HNIC orchestrating this.  then i thought, he can just claim he didn't mean to do it.  has that been used before?

any_mouse's picture

I missed the sarc tag on the HNIC "orchestrating" anything.

You know how the TV news anchors just read off the teleprompter?

Just like that, except he's the POTUS with the TOTUS. Without the CIA he would not have been born, anywhere.

You were just setting it up for the punch line.

I am amazed that so many American women still support the Clintons and the Podestas.  So much for "it takes a village".  More like "my child deserves a seat in Congress, but I don't mind if they make your child a sex slave".

If the Jews controlled the elevator it would only take them up and the rest of us down.

Now, of they investigate and find that he definitely committed criminal acts, but can't find proof of bad intent, should they just let him off the hook?

SoDamnMad's picture

Not only will they let him off the hook he will demand apologizes from everyone and blame the US for this.  Then he will come to the US and run for President in 2020.

Maybe it was President-elect Trump's camp that leaked it.

Maybe they don't really care for Bibi and his brash attitude and would rather work with someone more level-headed in the future.

Besides, you know how Trump values loyalty and screwing over the population by taking bribes from Iran, in essence, is the epitome of disloyal.

Bet it was Tump.

This could not explain the UN vote and US allowance of its passing.  You might want to distance yourself from Netanyahu if he were dirty, but you wouldn't do it that way unless you were brain dead.  No, the UN resolution was just Obama sticking the knife in the back of the Israelis whom I am pretty sure he despises as a country.

Who doesn't despise that shithole country?  cost to US taxpayers - Trillion$$$ and counting.  Absolutely, Zero ROI !!!!

But tell me why Russia voted for it instead of abstaining like us?  Then they back pedaled and said they try to revise the wording or delay the vote until parts were amended.
