Smiles On My Face

Ahh — the bright sunshine has put warm smiles on my face again.

Our High Court of Justice has negated the Likud’s petition to block a legal opinion on granting immunity from prosecution for an indicted prime minister on three criminal charges.

The Knesset legal advisor ruled that the immunity debate can proceed prior to our third national elections this past year, scheduled for 2 March. It is a welcome defeat for Netanyahu’s bid to avoid prosecution.

Sara can take out her handkerchief to absorb her many public crocodile tears.

The Knesset Speaker, Yuli Edelstein, had criticized the High Court’s ruling but has now been over-ruled by the Court’s decision and will not challenge it.

The blow to Bibi’s request for immunity from prosecution is a welcome sign of a rebirth of democracy in our troubled country.

A criminal prime minister’s request will be rejected. It has brought smiles to my face once again.

More, and even wider smiles, crossed my lips upon reading the funny remarks of the Yisrael Beiteinu leader, Avigdor Liberman.

He made public his claim that “Netanyahu would be willing to form a coalition with the Hamas terror group if it meant that he could clinch parliamentary immunity from prosecution. Netanyahu wants immunity even at the cost of a coalition with Hamas”.

Liberman, like all of us, know that such a coalition could never take place. It was his delusional sense of Russian humor that produced the remark.

However, while Liberman’s joke may be erased. my smile will still remain, just to think of it.

And please believe me. It is so nice to smile. It renews hope that the truth will outshine the darkness and that a once brilliant and devoted prime minister who got trapped in his egoism and thirst for wealth and total power will now have to face the reality and the eventuality of a prison cell.

A shame he brought upon himself and upon our nation. Much due to the encouragement of his wife.

To avoid the unnecessary costs for a new election, a taxing burden on our citizens, Bibi could develop a terrible and crushing flu, a heart attack, an inflamed throat of tonsillitis preventing him from speaking, all causes which could remove him from his throne of kingship to the joyous relief of voting Israeli citizens.

Is God listening ?

Who, then, would replace the Netanyahu throne? There are many good Likud politicians who would happily warm a Likud chair once it is cleansed and forever eliminated from its current occupant.

Likud has held control over the government and over our people for too long, It is time for new blood, new ideas, renewed hope, new visions — a new birth of freedom to all the citizens of our beautiful but sorely-troubled country.

I see a place for a Gantz-Lapid government, for, like our national flag, a blue-and-white sign of triumph over an old political party which, under the Netanyahu regime of 13 years, has lost its way and has forgotten its promises to our people.

With the recent rejection of Bibi’s hope for immunity from criminal prosecution a new sun is shining.

And it is one which brings smiles to my face. Smiles of new hope.

Are you smiling with me, dear fellow citizens?
