Israeli opposition politicians are calling on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to resign following police recommendations that he be indicted for corruption. "I can say this is a slanted document, extreme, full of holes, like Swiss cheese, and holds no water".

Eli Hazan, director of communications and worldwide relations for Israel's ruling Likud Party, said in an interview on Wednesday that the charges against Netanyahu are "absurd". Late past year, the protest movement was given a boost by Israeli lawmakers, who passed a law aimed at scrapping the procedure of police recommendations to the attorney general.

The development deals an embarrassing blow to the embattled prime minister and is likely to fuel calls for him to resign.

"I can reassure you that the coalition is stable", Netanyahu said at an event in Tel Aviv.

The decision on whether to press charges now rests with Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit.

The company's spokesperson added that the Alexa mobile app also has a setting that allows all voice purchases to be turned off. The app will access your contacts, and periodically update to the cloud, and find out of the person has an Echo device or not.

The only crack in the wall-to-wall support came from Education Minister Naftali Bennett, head of the nationalistic Jewish Home party, who said Mr Netanyahu could keep serving but was "not living up to the standard" expected of his office.

Now get this: on the question of whether elements in law enforcement and the political establishment are trying to launch a coup with the Netanyahu investigations-the most stirring and, possibly, outrageous argument in Bibi's rebuttal speech Tuesday night-a whopping 34% agreed.

Mr Netanyahu's ruling coalition, too, shows no signs of weakness.

Police said in a statement that Netanyahu had accepted gifts valued at 750,000 shekels ($214,000) from billionaire film producer Arnon Milchan, and that in exchange, Netanyahu operated on Milchan's behalf on USA visa matters and helped Milchan with the Israeli media market.

In all, the merchandise was worth more than one million Israeli shekels ($280,000), the statement said.

One of the cases against Netanyahu, known as Case 1000, alleged the "committing of crimes of bribery, fraud and breach of trust" by the prime minister.

In an emailed statement, a spokesman for Packer said: "There is no allegation of wrongdoing on Mr. Packer's behalf".

Lapid's remarks Wednesday came the morning after Israeli police recommended Netanyahu be indicted on bribery and breach of trust charges in two cases. A Hadashot News poll taken a day after the police said that Netanyahu should be prosecuted for corruption in two cases shows that the Likud would get 26 seats in a new Knesset, more than the party now has.

In an impassioned defence, Mr Netanyahu took aim at police investigators saying their figures were vastly inflated and tried "to create a false impression of exchanges that never existed". "The Israeli and Australian police have confirmed that he was interviewed as a witness, not a suspect".

The two men, police said, discussed ways of slowing the growth of a rival daily newspaper, Israel Hayom, "through legislation and other means".
