Netanyahu says allegations against him are 'like Swiss cheese'

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu waves during the dedication ceremony of a new concourse at the Ben Gurion International Airport near Lod Israel

She also noted that Israeli police chief Roni Alscheich leveled baseless claims against Netanyahu in a recent interview, including that the prime minister sent out private investigators against the police and that Netanyahu attempted to bribe Alscheich. No one, not I and no one else, plans to go to elections.

MK Yariv Levin (Likud) said Lapid was trying to "gain [political] power by way of unreliable testimony and by attempting a coup in defiance of the voters' will".

He said Netanyahu should "vacate his post" for the good of the country. And like those times, I am telling you: "This time, too, nothing will come out of all this", he said.

"It is the duty of every decent public figure to strengthen the police and the law and to act to end the path of the government headed by Netanyahu", he wrote on Twitter.

Bennett said at a meeting of local governments in Tel Aviv on Wednesday that he believes in Netanyahu's "sincere motives", but "taking gifts in large sums over a long period of time is not living up to this standard" expected of the premier. "Neither the public, nor the media or the politicians will be the ones that will determine [whether or not Netanyahu will stand trial], but as is the case with elected officials, only the attorney general's decision will determine if there is enough evidence to serve an indictment".

Netanyahu says he is as confident as always that "the truth will come to light and nothing will come of this".

He accused police of being on a witch hunt and vowed to remain in office. Netanyahu is also said to have supported Milchen in possible business deals with Israeli television stations as well as urged then-Secretary of State John Kerry to renew Milchen's US visa.

Police named Arnon Milchan, a Hollywood producer and Israeli citizen, and Packer, saying they gave gifts that included champagne, cigars and jewellery to Netanyahu and his family.

Hadad told Israel Radio that the sums allegedly received by Netanyahu according to police were "inflated, incorrect, unfactual, and simply unacceptable". A Hadashot News poll taken a day after the police said that Netanyahu should be prosecuted for corruption in two cases shows that the Likud would get 26 seats in a new Knesset, more than the party now has. "Not in a single day, not in a year, not at all".

"There have been 15 accusations made against Netanyahu", all without toppling the prime minister, added Hazan. The police have accused Netanyahu of accepting almost $300,000 in gifts over 10 years.

Gaining slightly in the Hadashot News poll is Moshe Kahlon's Kulanu, which would get nine seats; in the Channel Ten poll, Kulanu gets just five seats. Avi Gabbay, leader of the opposition Labour party, said "the Netanyahu era is over". The story of Ehud Olmert, the former Israeli prime minister convicted and sentenced for bribery and obstruction of justice in 2009, was more an exception rather than the rule, the observer argued.

Likud party lawmaker David Amsalem, the coalition whip, dismissed the police recommendations.
