There's nothing quite like a really rich, stinky-poo, political/legal brouhaha, provided, of course, it is somewhere far from home. Now, as y'all do know, there is no keener (if not strictly kosher) supporter of the state of Israel than me. However, I have never quite warmed to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu - not, of course, that it is necessary to 'lurve' political leaders - and it is true that I silently cheered him on when that ineffably dim-witted prig, Obama, tried to come on all superior. There is, I suppose, only one key measure of an Israeli prime minister and that is whether or not he leaves his embattled nation more or less secure than when he took office. I would judge, from this distance and looking "through a glass darkly", that he has been successful.
However, it appears that in other areas he may have been "a very naughty boy" and the Israeli police have urged that criminal proceedings should be taken against him. The final decision will rest with a man who possesses the most Jewish name since Shylock, the Attorney General, Mr. Avichai Mandelblit, who was hand-picked for his legal job by, er, well, Mr. Netanyahu, actually!
"Oi vey, my life already!", I can hear him muttering! This is the stuff of a truly great play, and if only God had seen fit to make me a great writer, as well as a great director and actor - and I heard that! - I would dearly love to write it. But of course, the final act has yet to play - watch this space!
