The man is indicted for corruption, he is clearly the most toxic person in Israeli politics, but still Likud cannot see beyond him.
That is profoundly sad:
Benjamin Netanyahu has won a landslide victory in a primary election for leadership of the ruling Likud party in Israel.This is f%$#ed up and sh%$.
Official results announced early on Friday showed Netanyahu capturing 72% of the votes, compared with 28% for challenger Gideon Saar. Earlier, Netanyahu had declared a huge victory following an exit poll that put him on course for more than 70% of the vote.
The prime minister, head of Likud for the past 14 years, retained the famously loyal rightwing party’s leadership in the internal ballot, despite battling three damning corruption indictments.
