Bennett: Israel approaching ‘abyss of anarchy,’ urgently needs functioning government

Yamina leader Naftali Bennett issues a first, somewhat vague reaction to today’s events at the cabinet.

“The State of Israel is approaching an abyss of anarchy. We don’t have any other country. I call on everyone to understand the enormity of the moment, pull themselves together, and show national responsibility,” he says.

“Israel urgently needs a functioning, stable government,” he adds.

It bears mention that Netanyahu can not hope to form a government without Bennett’s support. While the Yamina leader has said the premier has the party’s votes if he can form a government, he is also working on the possibility of potentially forming an alternative unity government which he, Bennett, will likely lead.
