Likud calls Herzog criticism of PM’s Paris trip ‘cynical’

Likud officials lashed out at Labor leader Isaac Herzog, saying that his criticism of Netanyahu’s trip to Paris was cynical and intended for his own political benefit.

“Instead of standing as a fortified wall for the State of Israel during these days, difficult for the entire Jewish community, Herzog chose to cynically and blatantly exploit the event in order to make political gains at the expense of the country and the Jews in the Diaspora.

“Herzog’s words are the perfect evidence of what the Israeli public can expect if a left-wing government is established after the election – a government that will be limp and irresponsible, toeing the line for foreign interests instead of forcefully insisting on defending Israel’s interests,” the Likud officials were quoted by Ynet as saying.
