Though Jerusalem rarely voices its opinion on the raging Syrian war, Israel secretly prefers war of attrition between the Assad's regime and its enemies.18:23 08.02.16 | 0 comments
The last stage in the Lieberman saga is upon us. Next month, the Attorney General is scheduled to meet with Lieberman and his lawyers for a "hearing", giving Lieberman a last chance to convince him that he should not be indicted. Following the police investigation and recommendation, and the recommendation of the State Prosecutor, as well as his own going over the material, the AG has already drafted the indictment, and chances that he will be convinced not to file it are slim. Within a month or two after the "hearing", the AG will announce his final decision. When indicted, Lieberman will have to quit the Cabinet, He said he will also quit the Knesset. He will then spend the next few years on trial and appeals, and outside the political system. His opinion will no longer matter, although Netanyahu will probably also boycott the PA Unity Government as Olmert did in 2006. I don't consider this a big deal. The Saudis can loan the PA the money until Israel releases it.
