Ahead of Ra’am leader Mansour Abbas’s widely anticipated prime time address at 8 p.m., Blue and White party leader warns the Islamic party chief not to support a government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu.
“Israel’s Arab citizens have been harmed in recent years by a series of actions led by Netanyahu,” Gantz says in a statement. “This hasn’t changed, and won’t change.”
Gantz, a Netanyahu rival who joined forces within him and signed a power-sharing deal only for Netanyahu to use a loophole to go back on it, says: “Now, when he needs you, he will tell you stories and promise the world, but he’s lying.
“All he wants is a single vote, to cancel the egalitarian government, and then when he no longer needs you, all the promises will go to the dustbin of history.”
