The exposure of the Israeli Prime Minister’s corruption has reactivated extremist currents in Israel and it is to be expected that even more aggressive personalities than Netanyahu will come to power, an Iranian political expert has just stated.
Hassan Hanizadeh told ILNA News Agency in an interview: “The uncovering of Netanyahu’s corruption is not only an unprecedented case in Israel’s political history, but it is also likely to have very dangerous consequences for this regime and for the entire region. »
To date, none of the Israeli Prime Ministers has found themselves under such pressure from public opinion and the Zionist regime’s judiciary. Some may argue that the situation is similar to that of Ehud Olmert, when he was sentenced to 16 months in prison, or that of Moshe Katsav, convicted of sexual harassment, but it must be acknowledged that the circumstances surrounding Netanayhu’s corruption cases are quite different from those of the two above-mentioned personalities. »
He continued: “What comes to us from Israel is that Netanyahu is likely to be overthrown or even imprisoned. »
It should be noted that in recent days, information has been circulating regarding his imminent conviction in corruption cases concerning him. Right-wing extremists, particularly rabbis influential in the Zionist regime’s politics, have announced that his term as Prime Minister is coming to an end.
They believe that Netanyahu has suffered security and political defeats in recent years, which they say has called into question “the honour and dignity of Israel”, if they exist at all… It is worth recalling that Netanyahu’s opponents have repeatedly stated that the two-day war in Gaza has led to the collapse of the Zionist regime’s image in the world.
Hanizadeh also stated: “Undoubtedly, the image of Likud has been damaged by the current situation, which has led members of this party as well as influential members of other parties to consider removing him from office.
At the same time, it should be noted that less than two months later, parliamentary elections will take place in Israel and Likud may then be the target of the worst criticism in relation to corruption cases against its leader. Obviously, votes in favour of the party will fall and its members will then for sure start looking for an even more extremist personality than Netanyahu. Some international observers believe that the former Minister of Military Affairs, Avigdor Lieberman, could be the “lucky one”, which would have a huge impact on the region and the occupied territories. »
If Lieberman wins the elections, the clashes between the Palestinian resistance movement and the Zionist regime will undoubtedly have a new chapter, as it is radical in every sense, and “the far-right party”[if there is a party that is not truly far-right in Israel] and radical Zionists all support it.
On the other hand, some “moderate” Israeli parties are trying to calm the situation, but it is difficult to know whether Netanyahu’s trial will be postponed or whether it will be held in the coming weeks and days,” the Iranian expert explains.
In any case, the Israeli political arena will be inflamed even after the elections and the right-wing parties that criticize Netanyahu will certainly want to form a war cabinet and an aggressive government (even as a coalition). We must therefore expect brutal personalities on the Tel Aviv political scene.
