Thousands of Israelis marched against corruption in Tel Aviv Friday, in the first protest since police recommended that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu be indicted for graft.Several thousand people gathered for the protest calling on Netanyahu to step down, carrying banners reading "Crime Minister" and 'Bye bye Bibi" – a common nickname for the Israeli leader.Netanyahu, who has served more than a decade as prime minister in two stints, has accused the police and media of a witch hunt.Three polls published since Tuesday have found Israelis fairly evenly split – with between 45 percent and 50 percent saying Netanyahu should either resign or temporarily step aside, while between 40 percent and 43 percent think he should stay.
