"How?", you ask.
In 2012, Mr. Netanyahu confessed that in deciding to release 1,027 convicted terrorists in the Shalit Deal, he was succumbing to Sara's pressure.
In 2012, columnist Barak Ravid wrote:
"Only recently, several long months late, he [Mr. Netanyahu] agreed to admit – in an interview with the German newspaper Bild – that his wife Sara put pressure on him to approve the Shalit deal." ["New Info on Shalit Deal Shows, Yet Again, That in the Mideast, Nothing Is as It Appears", Haaretz, July 24, 2012Even in the best of circumstances, any input from the wife of the prime minister in such a momentous move is egregiously unacceptable. Now, in light of the recording, we know what that "pressure" probably sounded like.
We should be shivering in our pants with the knowledge that this woman had, and still has, our lives in her hands. Thanks in part to her, several more Israelis were murdered by those Shalit Deal releasees [see "29-Jan-18: Freeing unrepentant terrorists and the horrors it has brought"]
Others, like our Malki's murderer, are still tirelessly engaged in incitement to murder with utter impunity.
Can we continue to allow the most powerful elected official in the country to lead us under the direct influence of this patently-unhinged woman?
