Netanyahu accuses ‘foreign govts’ of trying to bring  him down
With opposition gaining momentum ahead of this week’s general election, Israel’s hawkish Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused “foreign governments” and tycoons of pumping in millions of dollars to dislodge him.

Embarking on a blitz of media interviews and launching a major offensive against his rivals, Netanyahu has been trying to convince the right-wing voters to support him enmasse in order to keep the centre-left combination led by Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog out of power.

“There is a huge international effort, with major money, that is partnering up with leftist organisations here and also with media figures in order to bring down the Likud government that I head,” the Israeli Premier told Channel 2 and repeated the allegations again today in interviews to local media.
