Ex-PM Barak brands Jewish Home ‘fascist,’ Bennett a ‘clown’

Former prime minister Ehud Barak slams the Jewish Home head Naftali Bennett, calling him a “clown” and saying his pro-settlement, right-wing party “has a whiff of fascism about it.”

“I don’t argue with clowns who lead delusional, nationalist parties, that have a whiff of fascism and corruption about them,” Barak tells Army Radio in an interview.

His remarks come after Bennett said on Twitter that no other prime minister “did as much damage as [Barak] did in such a short period of time.”
