“These accusations will crumble when I’ll bring dozens of witnesses that were never questioned.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke for the first time in response to the Attorney-General's announcement that he intends to indict him for bribery.
"I met in Moscow with Putin, and I told him we will continue to collaborate against Iran. I heard Trump's words in favor of me," Netanyahu said. 

"This unique relationship with world leaders is no small matter, and for many years it has helped me to ensure our security, helped to preserve our country. The policy I lead with my friends in the Likud led Israel to the best decade in its history in security, foreign relations, the economy, in every field," Netanyahu continued." We turned Israel into a rising world force, but we did it without concessions and bowing our heads. We did it while constantly nurturing our strength, even militarily."

“The Left is on a hunting spree against me,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday, on the brink of tears, “I think they are already sewing suits, not just cases.”

“We have lead Israel to the best decade in it’s history,” he said, “they know they can’t defeat me at the ballot.”    

“They started this with trying to pin on me six cases of corruption,” he said, “these accusations will crumble when I’ll bring dozens of witnesses that were never questioned.” 

“It’s all a lie,” he said, “they take the work that every spokesperson does and only in my case they make it into a criminal case.”

Netanyahu said that the Left is creating "a blood-libel" against him, which includes his wife and son.

"Never in the history of Israel were positive press stories thought of as a bribe,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday, “only if your name is Netanyahu.” 
“There’s one law for everyone,” he said, “but another one for Netanyahu and the Likud.”

“This whole house of cards will collapses,” Netanyahu said, “I will serve you, people of Israel, for many more years to come.”

Netanyahu claimed that: "I intend to continue to serve the people and the country as Prime Minister for many years to come, but it depends on you - the people. Not in clerks, not in studios, not in commentators and reporters, it's up to you."

"The choice is sharp as a razor-a weak Left-wing government of Lapid and Gantz with the Arabs, or a strong government in my leadership. Netanyahu concluded.
