Likud fumes over Rabin grandson’s speech

Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party hits back at former premier Yitzhak Rabin’s grandson, after he praises the political shakeup that removed Netanyahu from power.

“The rule of the people triumphed over the rule of the individual?” Likud says, paraphrasing Jonatan Benartzi’s speech, “It’s exactly the opposite. It’s the individual who defrauded the nation to steal power.”

That’s apparently a reference to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, whose alliance with a diverse array of political parties landed him the premiership, despite holding just six parliamentary seats.
