NETANYAHU’S POLITICAL SUICIDE VIA YOUTUBE

Among the scenes videoed was a visit to the kitchen, which viewers can see is in need of repair. On Monday evening, however, Channel 10 news reported that the Netanyahus failed to include in the tour a glimpse of another modern, well-equipped kitchen located in their personal living quarters.

If you click on the video I presented yesterday you will get the following message: This video has been removed by the user.

Late yesterday there was a slightly different message: This video contains content from Noga Communications Channel8/Kids, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.

Whatever the real reason is for its removal, it’s obvious that it was an embarrassment to the Netanyahus, especially after the following report was issued … (click on link to see full report)

Bombshell report details excessive spending by prime minister

Political firestorm as comptroller says Netanyahus spent too much on food, cleaning at homes in Jerusalem, Caesarea; finds faulty administrative practices

Video tour of Netanyahu’s home: Innocent PR or inappropriate deal?

The Netanyahus deny paying designer Moshik Galamin for the tour – meanwhile, a product seen in the clip exposes a product his firm makes; former Shin Bet chief: ‘A terrorist organization would pay a fortune to get these details.’

Since the video clip was released on Sunday featuring a visit to the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem by interior designer Moshik Galamin, the question has been raised as to whether he got paid for the video.

The clip shows Galamin being greeted by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and touring the official residence with Netanyahu’s wife, Sara. Along the way the film highlights disrepair and deficiencies in the home, at a time when the media have asked questions about allegedly extravagant spending by the Netanyahus at the public’s expense, and more recently allegations that the First Lady may have pocketed thousands of shekels in refunds from bottle deposits that should have been returned to the state.

The Galamin footage shows a different, less extravagant and even shabby side to life at the residence, which may be to the prime minister’s advantage in the run-up to the March 17 Knesset election. But all those involved in producing the video, including Netanyahu’s Likud party and the family itself deny that the designer was paid for his involvement in it.

Now, however, it appears that there may be another motive for the video. It was first posted on Galamin’s Facebook page and then shared on the prime minister’s Facebook page, and has since been viewed hundreds of thousands of times. Just after the fifth minute of the clip, while Galamin and Sara Netanyahu were touring her room, the camera focuses on a portrait of the prime minister and his wife printed on a block of wood.

The picture was produced by a business that is owned by Galamin, which, about a month ago, began offering a product called Instablock in which pictures from the Instagram photo-sharing social media app are printed on wood or other blocks. The video in question shows a close-up of the back of the picture, featuring Galamin’s logo.

“And this is what I sent here — Instablock – and it’s here. It is the most beautiful [thing],” Galamin is heard saying. And Sara Netanyahu replies: “How beautiful. You’re right.”

When Galamin launched his new venture, he sent Instagram blocks to a number of celebrities, including the First Lady, in an effort to promote the project. Now he is indeed getting exposure for it, thanks to her.

Galamin and the Netanyahu family did not respond directly to the question of whether it was decided in advance that the video would publicize the Instagram block. For his part, however, Eldad Yaniv, a Knesset candidate on the Zionist Union slate, petitioned the Central Elections Committee to order that the clip be removed from the Internet on the grounds that it constitutes an instance of corporate funding of election-campaign materials, which is against the law.

Among the scenes videoed was a visit to the kitchen, which viewers can see is in need of repair. On Monday evening, however, Channel 10 news reported that the Netanyahus failed to include in the tour a glimpse of another modern, well-equipped kitchen located in their personal living quarters.
