Liberman to Netanyahu: ‘Apologize and resign’

Yisrael Beytenu chairman MK Avigdor Liberman calls for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to “apologize and resign” over continued violence in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

The former political ally of the prime minister says in a Facebook post Thursday, “When on the eve of Rosh Hashanah a Jew is murdered in Jerusalem, when before the holiday and during it there are riots and rocks thrown on the Temple Mount, when after the holiday Iron Dome is deployed in Ashdod for fear of the response of terrorists in Gaza, it’s time for the people of Israel to ask the prime minister where their security has gone, and their money.”

He adds: “And it is appropriate for the prime minister to ask forgiveness from Israel’s citizens for the false promises he has given them. After the apology, it would also be appropriate for him to resign.”
