Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

OK, I'm no native English speaker, but "Police recommends indicting Netanyahu" doesn't read like he's effectively indicted. And unless I'm missing something, he's still not indicted as of tonight.

Polls show support for Netanyahu may be rising after police allegations - Times of Israel

About half of Israelis want Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to step down over allegations of corruption, but the popularity of his ruling Likud party has been largely unaffected by police recommendations to indict him, a pair of polls released Wednesday showed.

A day after police published detailed criminal graft allegations in two separate cases, recommending the prime minister be indicted, 50 percent of respondents told a Channel 10 news poll Netanyahu should resign or declare his incapacity, while 42% said he should continue to serve as premier.

So Is Bibi Netanyahu Finally Getting Indicted or What? - Slate

 Israeli police have officially announced that they think there is enough evidence to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for corruption in two separate cases. This long-teased and widely expected announcement does not, however, mean that charges will actually be filed against Netanyahu.

If you're experiencing a bit of déjà vu, that's because there have been "BREAKING" news stories for months now indicating that the Teflon prime minister is on the verge of being prosecuted. But only the country's attorney general can actually file charges against Bibi, and it will likely take him several months to decide whether or not to do so. Even then, Netanyahu would not be legally required to step down.
