Audio of Sara Netanyahu Screaming over Gossip Column Goes Viral
On Sunday, the ‘Israeli' Walla! News website posted a tape recording it said featured Sara Netanyahu, the wife of the Zionist Premier, losing her temper in a 2009 telephone call with an unnamed senior aide of the Netanyahu family who had placed a news item about her in a newspaper gossip column.
"The Fury, The Screams and Losing Control: Sara Netanyahu as you've Never Heard Before," read the headline accompanying the recording.
Previously, in early January, ‘Israeli' television aired secretly recorded audio of Netanyahu's son and his friends after a visit to a club in 2015. In the recording, Yair Netanyahu, then 24, spoke about money owed and claimed his father had lobbied for a gas deal benefiting his friend's businessman father.
The leak comes as the Benjamin Netanyahu faces weekly street protests and calls for him to resign as police investigate him for suspected corruption. Netanyahu denies all wrongdoing.
Netanyahu accused the media of seeking to topple him from power.
In the recorded rant that surfaced Sunday, Netanyahu's wife is furious over the newspaper blurb about her appearance at a charity event to support underprivileged students at her sons' high school.
She was apparently mad the column did not mention that she is a professional psychologist who serves the public.
For years, Netanyahu's wife has faced negative media coverage, being portrayed as mercurial and conniving.
