MK Aida Touma-Sliman of the Arab-majority opposition Joint List party attacks the UN General Assembly speech given by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, claiming that it shows that the current government is continuing on the path of former premier Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Concealing the occupation and the existence of the Palestinian people, claims of Israel’s moral superiority, and warmongering on Iran. Those are the principles guiding Netanyahu’s right-wing government, and they are guiding Bennett’s government,” she says in a statement.

“Only a change of direction from the path of the right will bring peace and security to both nations,” Touma-Sliman adds.
