The Likud party issues a statement after former military chief Dan Halutz said Benjamin Netanyahu is no longer an Israeli patriot while invoking Hitler, but saying he wasn’t comparing the two.

“Dan Halutz… accuses Prime Minister Netanyahu, a bereaved brother, a fighter and commander in Sayeret Matkal, who was wounded in the Sabena operation to rescue hostages, of lack of patriotism,” the Likud party says.

“Dan Halutz continues the delusional and dangerous line of incitement and compares Prime Minister Netanyahu to Hitler,” the statement says.

“This is an open incitement to murder. Where has the law enforcement system gone?” it adds.
