Thousands March In Israel Against Government Corruption
It appears government anywhere in the world is incapable of separating itself from corruption.
Even in a country of God’s chosen people, there is still government corruption.
On Saturday, tens of thousands of people protested in Israeli capital, Tel Aviv against what they say is corruption within the government and the slow pace of investigations against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Netanyahu is suspected of receiving luxury gifts from wealthy supporters, and has also faced police questioning over a secret deal he allegedly sought for favourable coverage with the publisher of top-selling Israeli daily, Yediot Aharonot.
Protesters late Saturday massed in a large boulevard of an upmarket neighbourhood in the Israeli city, according to an AFP reporter, shouting "Shame" and "Bibi go home", referring to the prime minister by his nickname.

The rally, dubbed "the march of shame", was organised by the leaders of weekly protests which have taken place outside the home of Attorney General Avishai Mandelblit over the past few months.
"Bibi and his government are destroying the country. There's been enough corruption," said demonstrator Michal, a Tel Aviv resident who preferred not to give his full name.
Opposition leader Isaac Herzog expressed solidarity with the protesters, writing on Facebook that "the frustration stems from a feeling of injustice, revulsion against corruption and the moral objection to a law made to measure for one person".
