Netanyahu supporters set to rage against 'coup' at Tuesday rally in Tel Aviv

https://www.timesofisrael.com/netanyahu-supporters-to-rage-against-coup-in-tel-aviv-rally/

Throughout the last two years of police investigations against Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister has intermittently called his devotees to his side at Likud party rallies aimed at showing off the widespread support he enjoys and deriding his accusers and their claims.

On Tuesday evening, following the announcement of indictments against Netanyahu last week, he will take that model to a new heights, and some fear lows as well, with a mass rally in the center of Tel Aviv expected to include fierce criticism of the justice system and calls to investigate the prime minister’s prosecutors.


Last Thursday, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, a Netanyahu appointee, announced he would charge the prime minister with breach of trust and fraud in three cases, and bribery in one of them. The announcement marked the first time in Israel’s history that a serving prime minister faces a criminal indictment.

Netanyahu slammed the charges, vowed to stay on and fight what he called “tainted” and prejudiced investigations, and accused police investigators and prosecutors of plotting an “attempted coup” to bring him down.

Tuesday’s rally, officially organized by a handful of right-wing organizations but promoted heavily by the Likud party and Netanyahu himself, appears to be echoing the premier’s message, with posters for the event calling on the public to come and “stop the coup.”


An “attempted coup” really

This is Bibi at his best , stirring up his hard core and inciting them to violence just as he did before Rabin was assassinated .
Only this time its against the rule of law and democracy itself .
By calling on his supporters to “stop the coup” he is basically calling for a civil war .

They're all sounding and looking the same.

2. Yep - sounds just like the U.S.A....

...where enforcing the laws as written against a corrupt leader is spun as a “coup.”

3. drumpf has already assigned someone to study how little murderer does this.

He plans on following suit if Russia's vote hacking isn't sufficient to steal the election for him.
