Netanyahu rebuts ‘lefty’ Lapid and Liberman over BDS brouhaha

After being whacked by opposition lawmakers Lapid and Liberman over the state of Israel’s foreign policy, Netanyahu hits back, saying the critical couple are spreading BS instead of fighting BDS.

“There are those who choose to prattle and busy themselves with political conferences and there are those who fight pressures against Israel,” he says at the start of his Likud Knesset faction meeting.

He also calls Liberman and Lapid, by all accounts, a right winger and a centrist, “leftists.”

Netanyahu cites a University of Pennsylvania study that shows Israel as the eighth-strongest country in the world.

“This is because of three things: military might, international influence and international treaties,” he says.
