Pundits pan Gantz’s pleading palaver

Despite pundits assuming Gantz would use his speech to threaten Netanyahu, the address included no such combativeness, and the consensus is that his performance came across as less than stellar.

“Gantz was much tougher toward his partners two weeks ago, the people who supported him for prime minister for a year and believed in him, than he was toward Netanyahu. One of his ugliest moments,” writes Haaretz and Economist reporter Anshel Pfeffer.

“This guy will be prime minister when I’m the lead singer of the Arctic Monkeys,” Yedioth critic Einav Schiff snipes.

Both Channel 13’s Barak Ravid and Channel 12’s Amit Segal write the same mocking tweet about Gantz’s pleading tone: “Take me Bibi, please.”
