Herzog says he was willing to risk his own political future by entering a coalition government willing to work for peace, but Netanyahu chose an extremist government that endangers Israel.
“We had in-depth discussions. We formulated a framework based on understandings with major world leaders. I was personally involved,” Herzog tells the Israel Democracy Institute conference.
“Unfortunately, Netanyahu ultimately blinked and chose to go in a different direction, taking the helm of his government and going with Liberman and Bennett into an extremist government.”
