Cops work differently in Israel

The TV news is talking about Israeli cops accusing  prime minister Netanyahu of corruption and mopery and dopery.  They say the Israeli prosecutors now have to indict Netanyahu, which is expected to take a year or more.
   Wow!  Over here the cops don't have the stones to accuse powerful politicians of corruption.   US cops know that the politicians control their funding, their hiring, their promotions, and much else.  If the corruption charges don't stick, and in US courts anything can happen, the accused politician has plenty of time and power to take revenge on the accusers. 
  I guess things work differently in Israel.

I wonder what their constituents think

The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netenyahu, has been invited to address the US House of Representatives.  Recently certain democratic Congressmen have announced that they will not attend the Prime Minister's remarks, probably because Obama detests Mr. Netenyahu, and has asked his democratic supporters to snub him. 
   Many Americans, both Jewish and Gentile,  have great respect, admiration, even love, for  Israel.  They admire the Israeli's courage,  resource, and dedication in the face of implacable Arab hatred. 
   Speaking for myself, a Gentile, I would be offended if my Congressional representatives were to snub the leader of a smaller, friendly, allied, and threatened country.  I wonder  how many voters share my thinking on this.
