The wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not turn up to a court hearing in which she is accused of abusing her staff.

Former staffer at the Prime Minister’s residence, Shira Raban, filed a lawsuit against Sara Netanyahu alleging repeated and constant humiliation, and at one point fearing violence against her when she worked for the family in 2017.

She is suing Netanyahu for 225,000 shekels ($63,600) for what she describes as “despicable, inhuman, threatening and humiliating” working conditions, including attempted violence against her.

Raban claims that Netanyahu “treated her like a slave”, and would frequently throw tantrums.

It was also alleged that female staff members were not allowed to eat, drink, or take breaks and forbidden from using the toilet on the second floor. They were forced to work long hours without pay, including on the Shabbat, which is a day of rest, according to Israeli law.

The lawsuit also claims that Sara Netanyahu’s son, Yair, incited his mother’s fits of rage against cleaning staff by pointing out difficult-to-reach spots which had not been cleaned properly.

Netanyahu’s defence team has attempted to deflect the lawsuit by making claims against Raban’s mental health, including that she was “hallucinating”.

This is not the first time former household staff to the Netanyahus have taken her to court, with former caretaker Meni Naftali successfully suing them for abuse in 2016.

It was found that Netanyahu called Naftali at 3am to complain about milk, threw a vase of one-day-old flowers on the floor claiming they were not fresh enough and racially abused him about his Middle Eastern ethnicity.

A spokesperson for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu previously claimed that the accusations were slander and lies, and that Sara was being persecuted.

Earlier this year, Sara allegedly flew into a fit of rage after the pilot of an El Al flight to Ukraine failed to personally welcome her aboard over the intercom, an incident in which she had to be restrained by security as she tried to enter the cockpit to confront the pilot.

She later went on to behave rudely towards her Ukrainian hosts, by throwing the traditional Ukrainian hospitality gift of bread on the runway of the airport when it was given to her.

She was also previously convicted of fraudulently ordering takeaways using taxpayer money to the tune of nearly $100,000 and avoided a prison sentence by paying a fine of 55,000 shekels (just under $15,000).

  1. Nutenyahus wife is known all across the world as The PIg, as she looks and behaves like miss piggy
    Omega magazine said the favourite name for pet pigs in sara.
    Time the pair of them were in prison

  2. I would bet my last shekel that the plaintiffs charges are 100% true. This gives the world an insight to hell that is personalities of Israel’s ruling family. Abusive, cruel, despotic – just like their policies toward the imprisoned Palestinians.

    The White Polish Mileikowsky’s (a.k.a. Netanyahu’s) are fake ass Polish folks pretending to be god’s chosen people because their little brains are infected with Judaic religious memes. These anti-Semitic pretenders are really great example of how insane belief systems intersect into the modern world.

    Basically fake ass White Polish Jews are laying claim to Palestine based on words of a holy book written by some godly bloodline of another “race”. Absurd and tragic. Insane. Wrong. Farcical. Religious comedy theater.

    Worse is that tens of millions of Evangelical loons from around the world fully support these abusive lunatics and believe God’s words of prophecy are being fulfilled when Revelation was written by Rome after the fact and is about the first century rulers, see this:

    “Accordingly, the woman sits on the seven-headed beast as a symbol of her “seven hills” — the seven hills of Rome. The woman is the city of Roman, here depicted as the persecutor of Christians. Then it says that the seven heads are also seven kings. And we can read from its cryptic terminology the references to the Emperors of Rome. The “five fallen” refer to the five emperors who have died: Augustus (29 BCE – 14 CE), Tiberius (14-37 CE), Gaius (37-41), Claudius (41-54) and Nero (54-68). “One has a wound” refers to the emperor Nero, who died in 68, but whom conftemporary legend had it would return from the dead to continue persecuting the Christians. Thus, the beast has a head that has recovered from a mortal wound. The head “who is” refers to Vespasian (69-79) and the one that is “not yet” refers to Titus(79-81). The head that “was but is not” refers to an eighth emperor, Domitian.”


  3. Here is Sarah Netanyahu and Bibi on their wedding day:

  4. That bitch’s face screams malevolence. It seems to be saying, “you screw this one up Binyamin…AND I’LL RIP YOUR FUCKING NUTS OFF!” “Resting bitch-face”? HA!! Resting, active, sleeping, or shitting…ain’t it a bitch.

  5. Yes i read that the most favourite name for pigs is Sara.
    But no where it is truly said that god said jews were his chosen people
    just think they ignore and even laugh at the 10 commandments, they commit genocide daily, are the seat of world terrorism and are behind the wolrd banking swindles
    wait for the coming crash before we go non cash.
    If one belives in the bible, which can be made to say anything you want,
    it tells there on several occasions that israel wil be destroyed by fire,
    this is undoubtably a nuclear bomb or two and how the world will rejoice on that day
