Netanyahu reportedly slams government on dispute over reunification law

Former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly weighs in on the ongoing battle over extending the family reunification law that bars citizenship for Palestinians who marry Israeli citizens.

“They gave up on acting in the national and state interest and we’re supposed to cover for them?” Netanyahu reportedly says at a closed-door Likud faction meeting, according to Walla News. “This coalition has very serious cracks. They established a coalition with Ra’am and now they’re saying, ‘Save us from this coalition.’ Excuse me? What is that? They’re coming with complaints about the security of Israel? Then they shouldn’t have formed a government with Ra’am.”
