Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is facing indictment on charges of fraud, corruption, breach of trust and bribery. He’s also running for re-election, and with less than six weeks until ballots are scheduled to be cast in Israel, some have raised suspicions of a political hit, not unlike the various hearings and investigations ensnaring President Trump.

From a geostrategic standpoint there is no one, including Mr. Netanyahu’s political opponents, in the prime minister’s league when it comes to national security, economics and politics. In this, again, he in some ways resembles Mr. Trump.

Recall Mr. Netanyahu’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly last September in which he conducted a “show and tell” drama with pictures of a secret Iranian nuclear facility, as well as hidden missiles in Beirut. The speech was a searing indictment of the West’s wishful thinking when it comes to Iran, the nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration and the intentions of radical Muslim terrorists.

As David M. Weinberg wrote in The Jerusalem Post in 2017, “An overwhelming majority of Israelis ascribes the last decade of stability and triumph to Netanyahu’s leadership. He may not be the ultimate paragon of virtue — what politician is? But his prudence and professionalism have best served Israel’s strategic needs.”
