Rabbis propose PM retire in exchange for pardon

A number of religious Zionist rabbis sent a letter to President Reuben Rivlin on Tuesday following what they define as “an unprecedented and dangerous political and legal crisis.”

In a letter, the contents of which were published Tuesday by Channel 13 News, the rabbis wrote to the president, “This crisis threatens the ability of the political system to address the difficult challenges facing the State of Israel today.”

The rabbis called on the president to offer Netanyahu a deal in which the premier would retire in exchange for a pardon. “We urge you to offer the prime minister a full pardon, while at the same time retiring from office.”
