Former Israel Hayom editor Boaz Bismuth, who is running on the Likud slate in the upcoming elections, says party leader Benjamin Netanyahu is the greatest statesman in the world.

In an interview with the Walla news site, Bismuth is asked about the fact that loyalty to Netanyahu is the main requirement of Likud members these days.

Bismuth doesn’t deny the assertion.

“It’s not because we are idol worshipers, but we admire the leader, we think he’s the best,” Bismuth says.

“Furthermore, we have the luxury as Israeli citizens, not just of having the best politician in Israel, but the greatest statesman in the world,” Bismuth says.

Bismuth says that if he is still around in 30 or 40 years he will brag to his great-grandchildren that “I knew Netanyahu.”

Bismuth will be placed at 27 on the list for Likud, which is expected to receive between 30 and 35 seats in the next Knesset.
