Senator Warren: Netanyahu driving Israel to crisis to protect himself


Arurz Sheva: Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Monday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and accused him of driving Israel to a political crisis as a means to protect himself from criminal charges.

“I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.” Joel 3:2

Speaking at the J Street annual conference and quoted by Haaretz, Warren said, “He has precipitated four stalemate elections in two years in his frenzied effort to immunize himself from well-documented charges of corruption.”
