(Worthy News) – A belligerent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised on Sunday that he will act swiftly to bring down the “change coalition” led by Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid and Yamina leader Naftali Bennett, which is widely expected to be voted into government within days, ending Netanyahu’s remarkable 12-year reign as the head of Israeli government.
“We will come out with force against the formation of this dangerous coalition of fraud and surrender, and if God forbid it is established — we’ll overthrow it very quickly,” the leader told his Likud party associates.
Addressing the growing number of threats against Yamina and other coalition lawmakers, Netanyahu said that “we condemn all forms of incitement from any side, even when others remain mum while the incitement against us runs rampant,” he said. [ Source: i24 (Read More…) ]
