Lapid rails at government for not condemning Hungary’s LGBTQ policies

Opposition leader Yair Lapid hits out at the government for not signing a joint statement slamming Hungary’s LGTBQ policies.

“This is a moral and ethical disgrace and another failed diplomatic move. The Israeli government has been kidnapped by an extremist minority of fanatics,” Lapid charges in a statement.

“Where are the the liberals in Likud?” he adds, referring to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s party.

Thirty-eight countries, including the United States and all European Union nations but Poland, signed the letter, which was published before the Budapest Pride parade yesterday.
