BIBI IN HOT WATER
Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon resigned from his post Friday, citing “extremist and dangerous elements” that are threatening instability in the country. “I fought with all my might against manifestations of extremism, violence, and racism in Israeli society that threatens its sturdiness and is seeping into the army and already damaging it,” Yaalon, a moderate, said. He also went after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying he can no longer trust the premier.
