Gantz: Netanyahu attempted to steamroll the rule of law. He failed

In a statement to the media, Defense Minister Benny Gantz says that at the cabinet today, Prime Minister Netanyahu “attempted in a planned and deliberate manner to steamroll the rule of law. He tried and failed.”

He says the premier tried “to undermine the foundations of democracy” by holding a vote against the law that served as the basis for the current government.

“The prime ministers belligerent and illegal conduct must be stopped now,” he says.

And in a message to right-wing parties that are considering joining with the anti-Netanyahu camp in the Knesset to form a government, Gantz says Netanyahu’s “word is worthless, and personal considerations trump all others.”
