Lapid slams Netanyahu for comparing Tel Aviv protests to Huwara rioters
Opposition leader Yair Laid slams Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for comparing the thousands of people who protested in Tel Avi to the settlers who raged through the Palestinian town of Huwara.
“Huwara was a pogrom carried out by terrorists. How does Netanyahu equate them with people who served in Sayeret Matakal, Apache pilots, reservists, doctors, students, and people who took to the streets today,” Lapid says.
“These are the best people in Israel, that was a terrible statement, fomenting a feud by a weak and dangerous man,” he says.
