Responding to an outpouring of criticism against his promised appointment to head a Jewish identity office, Avi Maoz, head of the anti-LGBT, misogynistic Noam party, says attacks against him are the political campaign of a bitter minority.

Speaking at his one-man party’s faction meeting, Maoz says the criticism is “a wild political campaign by the left, headed by Yair Lapid and the media, against the elected prime minister and his attempt to form a government.”

“This is a campaign of the minority that lost the elections — against the majority of the people who spoke decisively at the ballot box,” he says.

“This campaign is nothing short of a rebellion and an attempt to prevent a prime minister from forming the only legitimate elected government after the elections,” Maoz continues.
