Netanyahu says new government would be ‘biggest election scam, maybe in history’

Raoul Wootliff is the The Times of Israel's political correspondent.

Railing against the emerging coalition, Netanyahu says, “This dangerous left-wing government will prevent settlement, will not face up to the Americans in an agreement with Iran that poses a threat to our very existence and will not withstand pressure.”

Repeating his claim that most of the public wants him to be prime minister, Netanyahu says that if formed, the new government will represent “a scam against the public. The biggest election scam, maybe, in history.”

He adds, “A government with the extreme left that depends on supporters of terrorism will not be able to take systematic and consistent action against terrorist organizations in Gaza and it is doubtful that it will fight the decision in The Hague tribunal.”
