Gantz warns Israel heading toward unprecedented ‘rift,’ urges PM to find ‘consensus’

National Unity party leader Benny Gantz calls for dialogue to avert what he says will be “a rift the likes of which it is doubtful [Israel has] ever known” and “a black day in the history” of the state.

“The judicial revolution will remake Israeli democracy to the extent that it will be unrecognizable,” he says at a conference.

Turning to Netanyahu, Gantz adds that there is a “historic opportunity” to find consensus on judicial reform.

“If one side loses, we all lose,” he adds. “It is not too late to turn the rift into an opportunity for reconciliation.”
