Netanyahu Works on the Sabbath

From renowned journalist David Remnick in an article discussing the increasing influence of national religious Israeli Jews in Israel today is this little mention of the fact that Prime Minister Netanyahu is secular.
For decades, the leaders of the state—the dominant figures in government, the military, the media, culture, and academia—were mainly secular. Israel has never had a religious Prime Minister. (Netanyahu works on the Sabbath, and on the rare occasion that he visits a synagogue it is to practice politics.) (David Remnick, The Party Faithful, The New Yorker, January 21, 2013.)
How many in the COGs will be aware of that?

PCG often praises Netanyahu. How many PCG members know that Netanyahu works on the Sabbath?
