J'Accuse, take two!

In what might be thought of as "Throwback Tuesday" headlines back from the '90s, the police, having concluded the investigation into allegations of fraud and tax evasion, the police are recommending the indictment of Aryeh Deri for bribes to the tune of hundreds of thousands of shekels along with tax evasion to the tune of millions of shekels.

Surprise, surprise. Putting Deri back in charge of the Misrad Hapnim was like appointing the cat in charge of guarding the milk, as so many people said at the time...

Anyways, Deri must be hoping for the government to fall and fast elections, and is probably disappointed now that Bennett backed down from bringing the government down yesterday and is still hoping for Kahlon to do that in the coming days... Fast elections would be great for Deri to capitalize on this police recommendation and possible indictment soon. Deri will become a martyr and the traditional mizrachi voters will be whipped up to support Shas after seeing how the establishment has Deri as a target once again.

We've been down this path before. This story is a rerun.

J'Accuse! He is innocent! Will they just use the old calls in support of Deri, and just reuse the old flyers, or will they come up with something new this time?
