“Netanyahu has been in a frightful panic over the looming moment in which he will have to leave his seat, and is not above any measure or any lie or fear-mongering” to prevent that, she charges.

She slams Netanyahu’s statement earlier today in which the PM warned his supporters that Arab turnout was unexpectedly high. “A prime minister who comes out against voting in democratic elections — who has heard of such a thing?”
