Lapid: Netanyahu, far-right allies leading to end of Israel ‘as we knew it’
Opposition leader Yair Lapid fires back at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for accusing opposition chiefs of fueling incitement against him, after an anti-government demonstrator was detained over a social media post in which he appeared to justify potentially assassinating the premier.
“The new spin of the poison machine. Bibi, Smotrich and Ben Gvir think they can preach morality to us. To the weak, racist and terror-supporting trio — it’s time you understand we don’t work for you, you won’t silence us and we won’t take lessons in democracy from you,” Lapid says, referring to premier and his far-right coalition partners.
“You are leading to Israel’s end as the country we knew. We’ll fight you and we’ll win,” adds Lapid.
