If Bibi is guilty, he should do time like Olmert did

Reader comment on item: Bibi for Prime Minister? No, For President
in response to reader comment: You're Wrong

Your "Moshe Dayan got away with it so Bibi should, too" logic maybe works in Arab countries, and maybe also in USA where Trump pardons his friends and family, just before he gets dragged out of the White House by the Secret Service.

Here, however, it is not USA and not Saudi Arabia . This my country, Israel. Times have changed, and thanks God Moshe Dayan story will not happen again here. I do not want to live in a country where a PM can get away with corruption and bribery. If Bibi is guilty even of a fraction of what he is charged with by the Israeli state prosecution, I want him to do time. Just like former center-leftwing PM Olmert did (as he deserved).
