Netanyahu's wife abused household staff, Israeli court finds | Reuters

JERUSALEM Benjamin Netanyahu's wife Sara insulted and raged at household staff, creating an abusive working environment at the Israeli prime minister's official residence, a labour court ruled on Wednesday. Allegations of mistreatment levelled by Meni Naftali, a former chief caretaker at the Jerusalem home, were dismissed by the Prime Minister's Office as "evil, skewed gossip" when the civil lawsuit was filed in 2014 #United States #Technology #Middle East #Israel #Latin America

"France fully supports the (United Nations) special envoy's decision to suspend negotiations to which neither Bashar al-Assad's regime nor his allies clearly want to contribute in good faith, thus torpedoing peace efforts," he added #United States #Business #Syria #Islam #Russia #Israel
