In a fiery speech full of biblical references, Religious Zionism leader Betzalel Smotrich rips into the incoming government as disdainful of Judaism.
“This is a government of hatred and boycotts,” he says, adding that “the only glue is jealousy and hatred,” the “lust for power,” and disdain for the Torah.
Smotrich characterizes the new coalition as an “Israeli government that leaves out the Jews.” He says it’s “not a Jewish state,” but rather one dependent on “terror supporters,” in a reference to the Islamist Ra’am party.
“This is a government of the desecration of God’s name,” he says.
“This won’t be forgiven.”
