1. For six years she took paychecks and now she complains.
Mrs. Netanyahu would have been a more appropriate title. If a domestic or other employee can't seduce the husband like Aleph did to Katsav, then attack the wife. At least Mrs. Netanyahu got people to do things her way since she was the employer, unlike Mrs. Katsav who could not get the clerical staff to dress modestly for work since they wanted to flaunt their near naked chests to seduce her husband. No doubt there are enemies behind the scenes paying such people to attack Israel's first families.
2. Modern day slavery....
As practised by the prime Minister's wife. Any thing to save a buck, Netanyahu?
3. Rabbi Yeshua asked, Who can stand before envy?
4. #1 people need to make money 2 live on!
5. Remembering the skit "under Sarah's sink"
It was satire but there is truth to it over the years the clear impression has been created by a whole group of former employees that there is a bit of obsessive compulsive cleanliness behavior in the Netanyahu household.
6. Where is Mrs. Sarah B. of USA - any resemblance?
7. I too am puzzled why anyone would work for six years under
If she has records of her hours and pay stubs and was cheated, then by all means collect everything a court could give her.
No one should suffer abuse from an employer and the time to end it is the first day it happens.

8. Wasnt there a similar case a few years ago involving her chi
9. People say she was a "pig".
But I think she has been punished and ridiculed enough. She can't speak in public. When she smiles at her husband's side, she is satirized.
10. I agree with #1
She could have said: Ïf these are your conditions, I am shomeret Shabbat and I am sorry but I will have to resign. No one forced her to work there. I have no doubt that the servant told the truth but Mrs N did nothing wrong.
11. Only in Israel...
...would an employee sue for not being allowed to be with her employer on a first name basis. That's really slavery!
12. This Lilian seems to be a silly fool,
willing to get a good extra money.
And Bibi's wife has a great merit:at least she hired a Jew to work for her.
What are both missing is to go to the Sinagogue and learn a bit of Ahavat Israel between the two.
That what is missing!
1. We don't know the facts
2. Minimum wage in Israel is about 100 Euros higher than in Spain, so even if underpaid she might have still got more than Zapatero pays
3. You should be more concerned with the astronomic unemployment rate in Spain than with a labor concflict in Israel
14. Former employee sues Sarah Netanyahu
may be Sarah, oh sorry Mrs. Sarah Netanyahu watched to many
15. I bet this isa prelude to her new book "The Bibi Bunch"
16. English saying-Dont wash dirty linen in public
17. Netanyahu the fool
Netanyahu betrayed his supporters by pushing for an Arab state and implementing the anti-Jew freeze, thinking that he would become popular.
Now, the press attacks him: first the Ayalon-Turkey incident, now the personal attacks on his wife.
The funny thing is that his friends warned him.
18. to Marco # 2
Mind your own country's business.. your country invented the inquisition and other forms of abuse. And most people in your country don't even know that the capital of Israel is Jerusalem. So you are definitely not in a position to even squeak in our direction. you want to be "European" with your anti Israeli sloganry, but the truth is that most Europeans look down on you even if they agree with your anti semitism
19. Everyone knows Lillian speaks the truth. Sara should pay up!
Reb L. Yell ,
One wonders about the flawed judgement of Mr Netanyahu by marrying a fruitcake.
21. Forgive my namesake, we still believe to be the Masters
of Judíos and criticize them left and right, no matter what the subject is or which side is right or wrong, Judíos are always to blame

22. Sounds like Ann Ayalon goes to Washington Part II
23. Sarah is a Monster; known fact
Everyomne knows that Sarah is a monster and pretencious prima donna.
24. Sarah sounds off the wall, to say the least.
There seems to be no limits to her conceit and arrogance as she boast about her house and being the "mother of the State of Israel." I wouldn't want to work for Mrs. Sarah Netanyahu. What a lousy attitude!
25. How is it that only Mrs. Shimon Peres avoids attacks?
Must be because the only time people see her is when she is admitted to a hospital. President Peres is wise to keep his treasure hidden from public view and attacks in such a vicious world where servants hate their employers. That is as ancient as time since even Hagar hated her mistress Sarah in the Bible in the family of Abraham the Patriarch.
26. If she is the mother of Israel, Isarel wishes
to bevome an orphan
27. Yes, there was a similar case some years
ago. She needs urgent psychiatric treatment. I am not sure that she can
be helped. Why did Bibi marry such a pain in the neck? I remember that she
got herself pregnant and forced him to
28. Does Sarah Think She's Leona Helmsley?
From a Western point of view, it would be rather unusual for a paid employee to call here by her first name. We would expect "Mrs. Netanyahu," but having to add "Sarah" to that is ridiculous. But that's the minor thing: the major thing is the alleged economic abuse.

29. Wasn't there a previous Netanyahu gift scandal?
I seem to recall that the last time the Bibis left office there was a scandal over them taking home valuable gifts which arguably had been given by foreign governments not to them personally but to the State of Israel.

30. Sounds fabricated and/or exaggerated
I seriously, seriously doubt that Mrs. Netanyahu strolls around proclaiming such things. Perhaps she once joked with a friend and made light, but who's to know? It appears to me more likely that this person held a grudge and took notes with an aim. For six years, she never complained? Why not?
As for allegations Netanyahu is some sort of prima donna, that too is not substantiated. If she is, that is an opinion and not illegal. That the plaintiff slanders her this way is disgusting and even unlawful.
And no person who is really observant of shabbot is working on shabbot. Sorry, I do not buy it.
Also, the various sets of clothing mean she strolled around room to room in filthy clothing after heavy work, and it is reasonable to change before going into the kitchen or living areas near guests. Again, the number of changes is perhaps exaggerated.
Until the response is issued how can you presume to judge anyone, including Sarah Netanyahu? What is that old commercial for hair dye, "Don't hate me because I am beautiful". Sarah Netanyahu could say, "Don't hate me just because I am Sarah Netanyahu. People change."
I know it is impossible to really know and judge people in the limelight. But Netanyahu deserves a fair hearing. What she does NOT deserve is this highly slanderous attack on her character. I find it abhorant, unbalanced and malicious and I really hope that if it is not true, Sarah Netanyahu countersues.
