Netanyahu teases Bennett over inclusion of Ra’am in alliance

Speaking after Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu berates the prime minister for proudly talking about meeting with Ra’am leader Mansour Abbas.

Netanyahu accuses Abbas of “embracing” terrorists he visits in jail.

“How is the prime minister not embarrassed to embrace someone who embraces terrorists? You have no shame and no choice. You need him, this government depends on the Muslim Brotherhood. You gave control of the government, and by transitive property the state, to the Muslim Brotherhood and Shura Council.”

Speaking to Channel 12 news, Abbas says “I haven’t visited terrorists in jail. Period. He lies.”

Netanyahu also accuses Bennett of being “high on himself” by talking up his government’s achievements.

“In Bennett’s office, like his party, everyone is leaving. They can’t handle all the winning,” he says sarcastically. “To say this government is the best, I think his logic is missing something.”
