Opposition Leader Benjamin Netanyahu attacks the government for “abandoning people to their deaths” by allegedly waiting too long in starting the COVID-19 vaccination campaign with the booster shot, despite Israel being the first country in the world to offer it widely.

Netanyahu says the government has tolerated the deaths of over 1,400 Israelis in three months during the recent Delta outbreak.

He also argues that the government is over-tolerating Iran’s nuclear activity, agreeing to coordinate military activity with the United States and not fighting the potential resumption of a nuclear deal.

“Have you gone crazy?” he says, attacking Bennett for not arguing against the deal during his recent UN speech. “You are accepting it as a done deal.”

He says the government is also failing to act adequately against Iranian and Palestinian terror.

“There is no leadership, there is no reaction, there is no decisiveness, there is only PR,” he says, alleging that the mainstream media is acting as a mouthpiece for the government.
