Herzog bites back at PM: He’s only good at talking

Isaac Herzog lashes out at Benjamin Netanyahu over leaked tapes in which the prime minister mocks the head of the opposition for a lack of defense credentials.

“Netanyahu is weak, very weak in acting, and, I am sorry to say, only strong on talking,” Army Radio quotes Herzog as saying.

The opposition chief also presents himself as a better option to lead the country:

“I would not only bring security, but I would also strengthen Israel’s international standing and even bring recognition for the Etzion [settlement] bloc,” he says.
