    Netanyahu humiliated after he tries to play down wealth with video recorded in his decrepit home... which is revealed to be his servants' quarters

    Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been left red-faced after a video shot by a celebrity home designer depicting his modest lifestyle was revealed to be recorded in his servants' quarters.
    The 15-minute film by Moshik Galamin showed Mr Netanyahu's wife Sara guiding the viewer around the couple's home, where run down parts of the property such as creaking doors and frayed carpets, are detailed.
    But it has now emerged Galamin was not granted access to the couple's upstairs living quarters, and Israel's Channel 10 TV claimed the kitchen in question was not even the one the Netanyahus use, but rather a secondary administrative kitchen.

     The embarrassing video forms just one of a series of damaging developments in Netanyahu's expenses controversy after an official watchdog criticised his spending of taxpayers' money. 
    In the clip, Sara Netanyahu unveils to interior designer Galamin a simple home with creaking doors and windows, frayed carpets, dusty lamps, cracked light fixtures and paint peeling off neglected walls.
    She bemoans how they didn't have the budget to fix upholstery before the 2013 visit of President Barack Obama and says he was forced to sit on a coffee-stained couch.

     'I don't notice the details because I don't dare think about it,' she says as she points to mildew in a courtyard.
    'When you walk out, make sure the door handle doesn't break off,' she said with a giggle as he parted.
    Galamin, who hosts a popular home remodeling TV show, said he funded the shoot - which opposition lawmakers say violated Israeli campaign finance laws.
    A former chief of the Shin Bet security service called the film a 'severe security breach' and said terrorist groups would have been willing to pay a hefty sum to acquire such an inside look at the prime minister's home.
    Netanyahu's office had no immediate comment on the TV report.

     The video, perhaps ironically, is set to catchy background music that includes the theme song from the Netflix series 'House of Cards' and Justin Timberlake's hit 'Cry Me a River.'
    'It was like a horrific traffic accident-something that you can't bear to watch but at the same time you can't tear your eyes away,' wrote Sima Kadmon, a frequent critic of the Netanyahus, sarcastically adding outrage over 'the shameful quality of life the royal family has been forced to live in during its years in power.'

    Netanyahu's rivals pounced on the material.
    The centrist Yesh Atid party, which has made corruption a centerpiece of its campaign, said the report and video reflected how disconnected Netanyahu was from real problems of average Israelis, who just three years ago took to the streets en masse to protest the country's high cost of living.
    'What matters are the citizens, not the carpets,' it said. 
    Meanwhile, the government's state comptroller has found 'excessive' amounts of public funds have been spent by Mr Netanyahu and his wife Sara, on food, furniture and gardening at their state residence and private home.
    In a report by the official watchdog, it was claimed cleaning expenses in the home on the coastal city of Caesarea averaged more than £1,370 a month in taxpayer's money even though the couple only spent the occasional weekend there. 

    It was also said they pocketed proceeds from recycling bottles that had been purchased for entertaining official guests. 

    It said the bottle returns, and purchases of garden furniture for their private home, may have violated the law.
    The watchdog's findings have ramped up tensions between the premier and his opponents in the run -up to elections on March 17 which have focused on the economic woes of middle and lower-class voters.
    Mr Netanyahu promised to follow the recommendations to curb spending but he also criticised the 'ongoing media campaign' surrounding the report, which he said was aimed at toppling him.
    Netanyahu's opponents have tried to portray him as enjoying a lavish lifestyle and being out of touch with the struggles of average Israelis.

    Netanyahu's allies angrily dismissed the allegations as part of a campaign to deflect attention from important national security issues.
    Mr Netanyahu and his wife are no strangers to such scrutiny.
    The prime minister has long been saddled with an image as a cigar-smoking, cognac-drinking socialite, while his wife has come under fire for her own expensive tastes and alleged abusive behavior toward staff.
    The Netanyahus accuse the Israeli media of a longstanding witch hunt against them. 
    In a statement, Netanyahu said he respected the findings of the comptroller and pledged to implement recommendations to curb wasteful spending.

    5. This is murder, pure and simple, but are we surprised that this happened? Not in the least, for there is no answer-ability for those called "police". They have a free reign to terrorize at will, and with complete immunity.

      "From enemies foreign and domestic" is in the oath. Wonder what category these slime fit into?

    6. Poor Bibi. Not to worry, when he comes to Congress next month, they'll soothe his aching ego and fill his pockets with taxpayer supplied glitter!

    7. Lies lies lies, why do Jews lie so much? Israelis are hiding their money in off shore bank accounts, afraid Americans will discover how rich they are and stop sending money to them. Is Israel the fifty first state as Jordan Maxwell suggests? If so then we know, Jews in New York City and Jews in Israel get most of the money America's government has designated for the states....

      If you or I would have shot this man in the exact same circumstances, WE WOULD BE SITTING IN A PRISON CELL AWAITING TRIAL FOLLOWED BY A LENGTHY PRISON SENTENCE!
      Fuck the police!

    9. Another incident in which a stupid, clueless wife calls the police, resulting in a death ... it seems to be either wives or neighbors who can't mind their own business who call the police. Who in their right mind, in today's world, would call the police at all? Clueless, stupid people. And, the policeman who shot Geer should be tried for murder ... all the low-life intellectually challenged "dogs in police suits" swarm like animals ... the result of a prohibition of hiring officers with a higher IQ never stops causing untold grief in society.

    11. Look like the police is a law unto themselves and executioner of the state without due process.

    12. Well, she is described as his 'common law wife' ... same difference' ... so his 'partner' turned him in anyway to the cops. Having ones partner turn on you is a common thing with women because of the DNA commands and cultural customs which insist they maintain control over the male. Regardless, she was stupid and clueless .... and called the cops.

Where are you from TOZ?? and is it a perfect country,doubt it,do people from all over thee world flock to where your from? Doubt that too,douche....this story is a tradegy and 60% of small town law enforcement,in the US,are loser bullies but I'll still take the US over ANY other country in the world....look at our track record over the past 100 years. In the history of the world,no country with so much power has done more to make the world a better place......where would we be if the US never existed, think about that for a moment. Your welcome....in advance.

    15. It isn't as if any rational person still believes the USA is a free country.

      Think about it. No-warrant wire taps, indefinite detention of citizens without charges, approval of rendition of prisoners and torture, stop and frisk without probable cause, search and seizure without a warrant, no-knock entry, confiscation and destruction of cameras that might have been used to film police acting illegally, police brutality, police shootings that go without investigation, managed news, and the civil-rights destroying "Patriot" Act.

      Acts of police behaving illegally, with shootings, Tasers, and unwarranted violence now appear almost daily. Rarely are these offenses punished. Most often "an investigation" is claimed, but soon forgotten.

      

In addition, the USA, with 5% of the world population, has 25% of all of the prisoners in the world. That means the USA has the most people in prison of any nation in history. Even by percentage of residents incarcerated, not just sheer numbers, USA is # 1



      Does any of that sound like a free country?

      As Dwight D. Eisenhower said about communism, "It's like slicing sausage. First they out off a small slice. That isn't worth fighting over. Then they take another small slice that isn't worth fighting over. Then another and another. Finally, all you have left is the string and that isn't worth fighting over, either.
