Meretz leader roasts Lapid for teaming with Liberman

After being lashed by Netanyahu, the dour dyad of Liberman and Lapid also takes heat from the left over their decision to hold a so-called emergency conference on the state of Israel’s foreign service.

Meretz leader Zehava Galon saves most of her opprobrium for Liberman, criticizing Lapid for teaming up with the right-wing politician.

“What a joke. Two opportunists who are taking advantage of the (harsh) fact that Israel doesn’t have a foreign minister, who don’t care in the slightest about Israel’s international standing,” she writes on Facebook, echoing some of Netanyahu’s talking points. “If that really interested Lapid, he wouldn’t make a conference with a former foreign minister who called for boycotting Arab businesses and judging Arab MKs ‘like at Nuremberg.'”
