Standing alongside four other opposition party chiefs, Labor leader Merav Michaeli accuses the coalition of pushing Israel toward “civil war” through their determination to controversially overhaul the judiciary.
“On the one hand, they make threats about civil war and, on the other hand, push for such a war,” she says, accusing the coalition of “inciting, lying, legislating unilaterally and destructively and inciting us against each other.
“And these are not the citizens who do it, they do it — politicians who care solely for themselves, for their seat, for their corruption, for which they are willing to sacrifice all of us.”
“Stop threatening, and just stop taking us there,” Michaeli says, adding that “this coup is good only for those in power, those who will suffer from it are first and foremost are citizens, from the right and the left.”
