Crime Marries Crime

The criminal prime minister awaiting indictment has fortunately failed in his efforts to curb the power of our courts.

Now a new criminal can continue living her life with a criminal record. We now have our first criminal Likud First Lady. The deal was sealed in the Jerusalem Magistrates Court in the case of the “Prepared Food Affair” against Sara Netanyahu, wife of prime minister (for not too much longer, hopefully), as she finally agreed to a plea deal. A new criminal wife of a criminal. A record in the annals of Israel’s courts.

Sara Netanyahu exchanged her big smiles for pathetic smirks as she told the judges following the reading of the guilty verdict, “I have suffered enough” !! What a joke. Her suffering is only now to begin.

She will not go to prison but in her plea deal she has agreed to pay 55,000 shekels instead of 359,000.

The High Court of Justice rejects the decision on the grounds that the plea deal is too lenient. Possibly because she is the wife of a sitting prime minister. For 4 years she has lied and insisted on her innocence, refusing to make deals. Now she is a registered criminal. There is a God !!

Sara Netanyahu has never been popular among the majority of Israelis who see her as a manipulator. It is she who tells the prime minister husband who to be appointed and who to be dismissed. She calls his shots. And he is powerless to refuse them. Some intimate persons know the reason why. Most of us only can guess.

(Just day-dreaming wondering if Bibi will pay some bribes to expunge Sara’s name from criminal records. With him, anything and everything is possible to satisfy his personal hunger).

And now miserable Yair can continue living miserably with two criminally-charged parents. When will his turn come? Insh’Allah.

The lying wife of a lying prime minister has been found guilty of corruption. Her selfishness has caught her in the trap of corruption against the State. She is now being called “Israel’s lying lady”.

It is not yet known if her license to practice psychology will be revoked. That decision must be made by another body outside of the courts. Can a corrupt and lying psychologist be trusted ?

Her late renowned father, Shmuel Ben-Artzi, must be turning over in his grave. From the depths of the earth his voice can be heard crying “is this the daughter whom I taught honesty and morality”?

Her 4 year long interrogation by the courts whose evidence was supported by reliable former workers in the prime minister’s official residence is further proof of the strength and dignity of our law system and courts in rendering justice to the high and low equally.

This newly convicted –on-a-plea-bargain criminal is the wife of an about-to-be convicted prime minister on three charges of bribery, corruption and fraud based upon direct testimony from others who saw and heard his improper dealings.

But Sara’s food crime (at least the only one of her convictions so far ,,, there may be more coming) Is far less of a criminal act than those of her husband. Nevertheless the facts remain : Crime is married to Crime.

With all the wealth which she owns, it is beyond understanding why meals prepared by caterers had to be paid for out of State funds rather than out of her personal pocket-book. Anything to defraud is a way by which she chose to live.

A plea bargain of a fine of 55,000 shekels rather than 359,000 shekels to be repaid to the State will not impoverish her financially. Far from it. Bibi still refuses to reveal the source and amount of his wealth.

He probably takes a cue from his idol, Donald Trump.

If he is found guilty and sentenced to prison while Sara is free, they might still be able to celebrate a honeymoon behind bars in the visitor’s section outside of the cells.

The Jerusalem court’s decision is a victory for Israeli justice. How much longer such court victories may be rendered will decide upon the Bibi’s and the Bezalel’s fall deeply and quickly out of government.

And as far as Sara is concerned, once out of the Official Residence on Balfour street, perhaps she can get her old job back.

El Al still needs more stewardesses.
