With banner headlines splashing the word "bribery" across their front pages, Israeli newspapers were filled with commentaries on 14 February, predicting the eventual political demise of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after police recommended his indictment on corruption charges.
"I will continue to leadIsrael responsibly and faithfully for as long as you, the citizens of Israel, choose me to lead you", he said. No one, not I, not anyone else, has plans to go to an election.
Bennett said he is confident that Netanyahu did nothing to intentionally harm Israel's security or economic well being, but criticized the prime minister for not being a good public role model.
The recommendations, which police made public on Tuesday night (local time), were at the more serious end of the range of charges that had been expected to be levelled against Mr Netanyahu, now in his fourth term.
Police can make only a recommendation; the final decision to indict rests with the Attorney-General.
Ahead of the police recommendations, there was speculation Netanyahu could call for early elections as part of a bid to get a public mandate and perhaps force a prosecutor to think twice before pressing charges.
Netanyahu pounced on this as an indication that the investigation was politically motivated and said Lapid looked to "topple me at any cost".
Netanyahu, who seemed to expect police announcement since last week, denied being bribed and announced he will remain in office.
A police statement said there was enough evidence to indict him for bribery, fraud, and breach of trust in two separate cases. "I am certain, as I have always been certain, and nothing has changed, that the truth will come to light and nothing will come of this".
Among police suspicions are that Netanyahu worked with Milchan, a well-known Hollywood producer, to arrange a United States visa, lessen the billionare's tax burden, and assist with business ventures. His Likud allies lashed out at Lapid, with Amsalem angrily calling him a "snitch". Netanyahu himself called the allegations unfounded and said he would not resign.
The allegations have nevertheless shaken Israel's political landscape and raised questions over whether Netanyahu's 12-year tenure as prime minister could be nearing its end. Not in a single day, not in a year, not at all, " Hadad said.
Netanyahu, in a live televised speech, denounced the recommendations, saying that he would continue to lead the country.
"A prime minister is not meant to be flawless or live an over-modest lifestyle, but he needs to be someone people look at and say: "This is how one should act", he said in a speech in Tel Aviv.
During similar circumstances a decade ago, Netanyahu, as opposition leader, urged then-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to resign during a police investigation, saying a leader "sunk up to his neck in interrogations" could not govern properly.
Case 2000, the second lodged against Netanyahu, alleged Netanyahu and Arnon Mozes, the publisher of Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, tried to slow the growth of rival daily Israel Hayom "through legislation and other means".
