Joint List chief Ayman Odeh accuses opposition leader Yair Lapid of “constantly lying,” pointing to comments he made earlier today saying the Joint List is working together with Likud.

“He knows that it doesn’t have a grain of truth, that it’s all lies,” Odeh says at a faction meeting in the Knesset of the Hadash-Ta’al party.

“You didn’t succeed in leading your camp in the election, you’re not succeeding in leading the opposition,” Odeh says to Lapid. “You got used to the ‘nice Arab,’ therefore it’s hard for you to deal with Arabs with a backbone.”

Odeh accuses Lapid of leading a government “that killed 114 Palestinians. Tell me: is there one Jewish politician who would support a government that killed 114 Jews?” Nevertheless, Odeh added, it was not Hadash-Ta’al that brought down the past government.

Regardless, Odeh adds, his party is willing to work with the opposition against the current government “in a way that is consistent with our values.”

Odeh was responding to Lapid’s comments earlier today when the opposition leader was asked why Hadash-Ta’al was not part of opposition party meetings. Lapid in response accused the Arab party of working with Likud against his camp.
