I was wondering what happened to this story

August 31, 2011
The Israeli prime minister’s office denied media reports Binyamin Netanyahu’s wife mistreated a foreign worker hired to care for her elderly father. Channel 2 reported Tuesday Sarah Netanyahu was suspected of mistreating a caretaker from Nepal. The television report said she suspected the worker of stealing money from her 96-year old father. An argument allegedly ensued and the worker fell, injuring her hand. In response to the theft allegations, the worker alleged Netanyahu failed to feed her, cursed her and refused to give her vacation time. A statement issued by Binyamin Netanyahu’s office denied the charges and said the worker’s allegations were baseless, made only after she found out the agency employing her was looking for a replacement, The Jerusalem Post said. “When it became known to her that she was about to be fired — something that could lead to her being deported from the country — she made up the story, and now there is a cynical and unworthy campaign against the Netanyahu family,” the Post quoted the statement issued by Netanyahu’s office.

I remember this story being a big thing in the NYTimes. Honestly I was so scared of Obama and Livni that I forgot about this libelous story completely. For one thing the person who would take the blame would be his wife… and that kind of attitude that blamed Bibi for Sarah was pushed when the NYTimes thought the Clinton family and their ambitious husband wife team was some kind of ideal match, when in fact it kind of led Bill to go wild. So the story was a big deal because the liberal media was condemning people based on their spouses behavior and comparing them to the careerist culture of the progressive Democrats. Now it has been exposed that this culture and it’s role models were a facade, but the libel against poor Sarah Netanyahu still is out there because the original juxtaposition of the alleged accusation is moved from being a condemnation of a marriage (that would implicate Bibi) to a Socioeconomic allegation that is more in line with the attitude of the Tel Aviv Tent protesters. The one consistency is that the story is probably bullshit. If you have never fired a difficult worker and had accusations come out then you have never had to employ anyone… let alone in a difficult situation where an elderly man is being taken care of. Then there is the other issue. Suppose Sarah is guilty? How guilty is she really? She was concerned about her dying father. It shows how biased the media is against Jewish leadership.
