National Security adviser Tzachi Hanegbi issues a denial of quotes attributed to him earlier, according to which the anti-overhaul protest movement prevented Israel from sliding toward dictatorship.

Hanegbi says, “The comments aired in the interview… were completely and deliberately distorted.”

“I made it very clear during the interview that the ‘fear of dictatorship’ was in the minds of the protesters, with no connection to reality, and the [supposed statements] do not at all represent my position or the position of the prime minister.”

Notably the interview itself has not yet aired — only a promotion for it.

Also of note: Hanegbi’s acknowledgement in the promotion that the protest movement was key to eliminating the original overhaul plans were unedited, and he does not appear to deny them.
