Ya’alon: Like Hamas leaders, Netanyahu rules over Likud with ‘balance of terror’

Blue and White MK Moshe Ya’alon compares Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s reign over lawmakers from his own party to how the Hamas terror group controls its own members.

“In Likud they choose [their list] through democratic elections. Hamas is also elected in democratic elections, but then [the MK] are managed using a balance of terror,” Ya’alon tells Channel 12.

He clarifies that his criticism is directed not at the Likud slate, but at Netanyahu himself. The senior Blue and White MK claims that there are a number of Likud MKs who agree with him privately.
