Israel: Thousands call on ‘Crime Minister’ Netanyahu to resign

Thousands of Israelis marched in Tel Aviv on Saturday calling on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to resign over corruption allegations. Protesters shouted slogans and carried placards denouncing the government, calling Netanyahu “Crime Minister.” One of the protest’s leaders, Eldad Yaniv, told the chanting crowd that «this is a struggle that is persisting, Saturday after Saturday, the... Еще longest in the History of Israel, and it will change the future.» In the words of protester Aylon Vaidya «the Prime minister and his friends are full of corruption. End the corruption in this country; we want a real democratic state.» In the past year, Netanyahu has been questioned in two corruption probes, which he claims to be false accusations from his opponents. Results of the investigation are expected within the next few weeks. If charged, the prime minister would be under pressure to resign or to call new elections. Right-wing protesters also took part in a counter-demonstration.
