Pell’s accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997.

And yet the pursuit of such allegedly short-term gains has kept Netanyahu in power for more than a decade. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
