Israeli leader Netanyahu: Foreign powers want to push me out

The Associated Press

JERUSALEM (AP) Israel's prime minister is accusing foreign governments of trying to topple him from power.

Benjamin Netanyahu tells Israel's Army Radio Sunday that foreign powers have spent millions of dollars as part of an orchestrated campaign against him. He did not indicate which governments he was referring to, but said they were colluding with the media and leftist groups in a "just not Bibi" campaign, referring to himself by his popular nickname. He said these foreign powers do not have Israelis' interests in mind and just want weak leadership that will capitulate to their demands.

Netanyahu is trailing the opposition Zionist Union two days before the national election.

After shunning the media for much of his tenure, Netanyahu has been on a media blitz lately to try and close the gap.
