State: Lieberman to face fraud, breach of trust charges     Aviel Magnezi
1. The witch hunt continues against dear Mr. Lieberman
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (12.13.12)
2. left wing witch hunt!
This is nothing more than an attempt to disrupt the elections in an attempt to destroy the right. I suspect Livni is in the background pulling her little puppet strings to destroy Israel. She wants to give Israel to her pal abbas.
DavidR ,   USA   (12.13.12)
3. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy
All of our past deds/misdeeds will come to haunt us or reward.
Harley ,   Bethsaida, M.D.   (12.13.12)
4. Suspicious
In my opinion Weinstein needs to investigated himself . Why is it he consistently uses his power to put pressure on Israeli politions to either retire or change policy. There has to be a reason. Using his power to influence policy rather than uphold the law is illegal in any country in my opinion. The question is why? The Israeli people needs to find out.

5. If Lieberman was Left he would not be
charged at all. Strange that it has happened now !
DT ,   TA Israel   (12.13.12)
6. Der'i-Benizri-Kattzav-Abuhazera-jailed Sharon Bibi Barak no
Liberman will wqalk ,   tampa   (12.13.12)
7. Teflon man
Nothing seems to stick to him. What a pity. Hopefully it will be possible to get rid of this odious individual from the ranks of government in Israel. The country deserves better. He should join the likes of Hirschenson, Katzav etc behind bars.
Mike ,   Tel Aviv   (12.13.12)
8. another stain on our morality
Israel deserves better leaders who set examples of what is acceptable and what is not. This nation has so much work to do on itself, but has such a strong tendancy to look on the outside and blame others. Israel needs to start cleaning itself up. This man must resign, Olmert must be banned from returning to Political life and Deri must go. At least Katsav is paying for his crimes. We are the Chosen People. With that comes responsibility. It applies to all levels!! Things do not reflect well on us at this point.
Bob ,   kfar saba   (12.13.12)
9. Good start
of anti-Abbas campaign. It will gain much more credibility.
Jarda ,   Czech Republic   (12.13.12)
10. The crook should step down
Go back to a job for which he is qualified: bouncer.
Giora Me'ir ,   USA   (12.13.12)
11. #9 Jarda, There appears to be a short circuit...
in your brain. Try following the contents of the article, and internalizing at least the subject matter it is talking about, before posting...if that is at all possible.

12. Breach of trust is non - criminal offence.
It's an administrative issue resolved in commitees.
Miron ,   USA   (12.13.12)
13. There are too many laws. Friends SHOULD help and warn
FRIENDS. That is what friendship is all about: protecting, comforting and helping each other. Are politicians to have no friends except dogs who can't talk?

14. Right wings know how to witch hunt also
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (12.13.12)
15. He has "suspicions" while arab MKs are open traitors.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (12.13.12)
16. In the name of...
Why the GA have to always choose sensitive timing to act? Is the GA is really cleaner? Bibi, Sharron, and now Leiberman. Why be so kind too real crooks like Olmert? so many questions that I wonder if the GA is not over influenced by the leftists or maybe bribes?
David ,   Montreal Canada   (12.13.12)
17. Throw the bum out!
StevieT ,   USA   (12.13.12)
18. Lieberman changed with a "minor" offence.
I am no supporter of Lieberman and I totally detest some of the Stalinist verbiage that emits from his party. However, he didn't cause the deaths of anyone and his party's Minister of Internal Security, Itschak Aronowich, behaved very well two years ago when we had the Carmel Fire Disaster. Unfortunately the Prime Minister hasn't seen fit to call his two Ministers, Yishai and Steinitz, who, due to THEIR negligence, cause the deaths of 44 people, 43 of who were Government workers and 1 a 16 yeard of boy, Elad Riven, in account. One would have thought that these two, Ministers in the Government of the State of Israel, would have had the decency to have resigned and at least to have behave like men and accepted their failure but the didn't. They hid behind the Prime Minister and this show what this Government and probably the next stand for!
David ,   Israel   (12.13.12)
19. Amazing how many USAniks know hat is best for Israel!
Usually they are armchair generals, now they are lawyers and judges! Mind your own business. If you weren't so busy interfering in Israels affairs you might not have voted for the most Anti-Israel President of the USA!
Dee Bee ,   Israel   (12.13.12)
20. This is bad news for the PA and Fatah
In recent years Israel's courts have dealt with cases brought against government ministers,a Prime Minister and even a President.All these have been sentenced to punishment if found guilty,as several have.This is simply the latest case. What this shows is that Israel's justice system is independent of the government:a fine thing in a democracy like Israel.But that very fact,shown over and over again,is bad news for the PA and Abbas and his Fatah cronies. It lays the lie that the PA can have Israelis hauled before the ICC.It cannot.Even if Israel accepted the ICC's jurisdiction,which it does not,cases would have to be heard in Israel's courts because they can be trusted and the ICC is a court of LAST resort,not FIRST resort. So nice try but bad luck PA. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!

21. FLUSH HIM DOWN THE YOU-KNOW-WHAT !
The Zionist dream reaches a new low !! Can you believe that this tinofet is FM - representing Israel before the world?? But look who appointed him and there should be no surprise... (In fact Bibi is now congratulating Lieberman - how appropriate - like Capone praising Dillinger!) Whatever you may think of Abba Eban - he never would have been associated with this sort of scandal. How far the country has dropped!
Rafi ,   US   (12.13.12)
22. breach of trust - yea right
Its a last ditch effort by the left to prevent him becoming Defense minister that he covets. The defense ministry and the IDF is a bastion of the left. Still it wont help them the whole country is moving to the right after experiencing all the lefties follies commencing with Oslo. You have to really ask yourself why now? and is that all they can get him on practising a little 'proteksia' that most if not all politicians practise. Would be nice if the public can show the left how they feel about all their shannanigans by more votes for the right and utter collapse of the left in the upcoming elections.

Something you can only dream about.

24. Dee Bee, #19
There happens to be thousands of us in the US that has Israel's best interest at heart. That would fight and die for Israel given the opportunity. Your ungrateful smart mouth does Israel no good. It is obvious you are a left wing nut job or you would appreciate Lieberman's efforts to stand up for Israel against the whole world while cowards like you sit back and criticize. You remind me of salma. So, Bee, pull your stinger back in, no one wants your honey.
DavidR ,   USA   (12.13.12)
25. #19 Dee Bee
I misread your talkback the first time. I apologize for calling you left wing in my previous post and also for comparing you to salma. However, I still believe that to generalize about all from the US is wrong. There are many here who care and who know the situation well.

27. It's interesting how Weinstein waited to smear Liberman ...
a few weeks prior to the elections. Liberman should not resign. Weinstein is abusing his powers to political manipulation. Why doesn't he indict Zoabi and the balad party for treason.
