Netanyahu: Noni Mozes is the One Behind the Wave of Slander Against Me

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has placed the responsibility of the wave of slanderous press against him and his wife square on the shoulders of Yedioth Ahranoth publisher Arnon (Noni) Mozes, and stated so via his Twitter account,

"It's time to put the cards on the table," the Prime Minister said. "The main cause behind the wave of slander against my wife and myself in the press is Noni Mozes, who publishes Yedioth Ahranoth and Ynet. He is not above using any means to bring down a government under my leadership, to close the newspaper Yisrael Hayom, and to reclaim control using Yedioth Ahranoth's negative writings."

"There are two levels of this ridiculous smear campaign, the first being to slander my wife and myself as part of an attempt to bring down the Likud, and place the Left as the government. But neither the Likud nor I will flinch at this attempt. We will continue to fight against this  malicious slander in order to safeguard the security and prosperity of the State of Israel and its people," Netanyahu wrote.
