Prime Minister Yair Lapid slams his likely successor, Benjamin Netanyahu, for criticizing his call against giving the anti-LGBT Knesset member Avi Maoz control over parts of the education system.
“Netanyahu said this week that the fact that I am calling on the heads of the authorities not to cooperate with Maoz is sedition. There is no limit to this man’s shamelessness,” Lapid says at a faction meeting of his Yesh Atid party.
“If you think what I’ve been saying the last few days is rebellious, I have news for you, you ain’t seen nothing yet. I have just started,” Lapid says.
“We are not your suckers. We are not here just to pay taxes and send our children to the army. Most of the people are against this conduct, including the Likudniks,” he says.
