Isaac Herzog on the strength of Israel’s political system

“These are difficult days for democracy in Israel, but also days of cleaning and exposure. There is no doubt that our democracy is strong and will withstand this [criminal investigation]. It is important to say and emphasise that the political system is not corrupt to the core and neither are journalists and the media, because there are good and powerful forces working to right these wrongs.”

(Opposition leader and Zionist Union Chairman Isaac Herzog speaking on the strength of Israeli law in light of the criminal investigation into the Prime Minister, 16/01/2017)
