Meretz leader, protesting at Netanyahu trial, blasts his former allies

Meretz leader Nitzan Horowitz posts a photo of himself protesting against Netanyahu outside the courtroom, and slams Blue and White and Labor lawmakers for dropping their fight against corruption to join the Likud-led government.

“Those who should be standing with me, against the wild incitement in the courts, are [Blue and White leader Benny] Gantz, [Avi] Nissenkorn, [Labor leader Amir] Peretz and [Gabi] Ashkenazi,” he tweets. “But they, who were elected to fight corruption, are silent like fish. They are serving under the defendant, and giving him approval. Shameful.”

Meretz ran in the March election on a joint ticket with Labor and Gesher, both of which broke off to join the new government.
