Before I form an opinion regarding the plea bargain that may be formed between the State Attorney's Office and Benjamin Netanyahu, I will make a commitment: the hearing and its conclusions are in second place and subject to Netanyahu's decision.
For every decision, whether I like it or not, I say thank you very much.
There is no brother in Israeli politics to the personal price he paid for the position to which his supporters (and I among them) sent him, and I do not have the courage to show off and ask him for more.
My opinion is that agreeing to some kind of plea bargain would be a decisive discrimination to the national camp and a punch to the heart of Israeli democracy.
Any move that does not lead to a clear and unequivocal verdict signed in the blow of the referee's hammer will be a historic victory for the elites.
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
It may be strange to hear the following statement from a sworn babysitter, but the battle never revolved around the fate of Netanyahu the man.
If he is removed from Israeli politics, it will be a depressing affair in itself, my heart will surely be broken, but what is at stake here is not just Bibi.
The question is this: will Israel continue to thrive as a Zionist and democratic state or will it slowly die out, saturated and confused, into the abyss of oblivion?
This was the goal of the elites: the change of government in Israel while ousting an elected prime minister.
Short, elegant and unambiguous.
Since this is a zero-sum game where both sides are fighting for the same prize, it is easy to understand that the goal of the right, quite simply, is to deny this achievement to the elites.
Marking the line with sand and conveying an unequivocal message against the invaders: on my dead body.
Out of distraction and erosion of the desire to fight for our existence, the proponents of the deal do not notice that the decision in the battle is not around the corner but is here and now.
The plea deal is — is the ending scene.
Years of deception and lies fooled us into believing in a conciliatory discourse and a willing mind, and lo and behold, we were almost done arranging the players on the chessboard, but we did not notice that the Black King had already fallen.
It is interesting that many of those who support the deal are precisely those who call for a reform of the Israeli law enforcement system.
According to them, after Netanyahu voluntarily vacates his seat, the right will be able to rehabilitate itself and finally make the necessary changes.
These dream of a fair move and the creation of the girls to save Israeli democracy, and while they dream they lose the one opportunity, the only possible battle that is taking place right now under their noses.
I wish I was wrong, but if a white flag is raised now, two generations will pass before a leader of the size of Netanyahu, one who can save Israeli democracy, emerges to the right, and today's abandonment becomes the norm: a democratic style in which the people's decision is accepted by the elites. He, the people, will not exaggerate with his nonsense.
Were we wrong?
