Netanyahu at Passover toast: Our goal is ‘to reach agreements’
Speaking at a holiday toast with his office staffers before Passover, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterates that his goal is to reach a wide consensus on the controversial judicial overhaul.
A day after his dramatic speech announcing a halt to the contentious legislation, Netanyahu says “we are in the middle of an important debate, and we will overcome it.”
The prime minister says that during the holiday, “you can fight a little bit, not too much” with your families at the dinner table and “come to an agreement.”
“This is our goal — to reach agreements,” he adds.
