Do Israelis Still Trust the System?
JERUSALEM - Fifty-six percent of Israelis believe that Prime Minister Netanyahu should resign after being indicted for bribery by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, noted Channel 13 in a recent poll. However, the same poll found that 35 percent said that he shouldn’t resign and another 9% said they didn’t yet know. The fact that a massive segment of Israeli society does not think Netanyahu should step down after being accused of such a crime shows that many Israelis no longer trust the system. On today’s program, host Brent Nagtegaal discusses the announcement to indict Netanyahu, the entrenchment of Israel’s “deep state” and Israel’s broadening divisions.
