Liberman slams Gallant for ‘capitulating’ to Netanyahu after canceled speech

Opposition member Avigdor Liberman, head of Yisrael Beytenu, criticizes Defense Minister Yoav Gallant for “capitulating” to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after he canceled a speech earlier in which he was reported to call for a halt to the judicial overhaul push.

“You can say that he committed a political ‘hara-kiri,'” says Liberman, using a term that means a form of Japanese ritualistic suicide.

“Gallant, who went out this morning determined to say everything he knows, everything he hears in the assessments of the situation, intended to say these things to the nation, but in the end, he capitulated and became a doormat,” says Liberman.
