Likud representatives alleged on Thursday that a new video involving senior and former IDF officers, along with high-ranking officials from Israel's other security agencies, was further proof of the millions of dollars being transferred from leftist organizations in the U.S. and Europe to radical leftist Israeli groups. According to Likud officials, the "Commanders for Israel's Security" campaign is aimed at "toppling the Netanyahu-led Likud government illegally."Boy, what disgraces these people are, interfering in elections yet refusing to be honest about their funding. And they're even kowtowing to the Saudis. They should be ashamed of themselves.
In the video aired Thursday on Channel 2 News, former IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. (ret.) Dan Halutz was seen attacking the current government, along with former Mossad Director Zvi Zamir and others.
"It comes as no surprise that a failed chief of staff who left the IDF after misconduct surrounding the Second Lebanon War is leading this morally questionable political campaign," one Likud official said. "The only party to choose from is the Likud, led by Netanyahu, who will continue to boldly defend Israel's security."
The "Commanders for Israel's Security" group issued a statement, although it contradicts itself: On one hand, the group's website states that "the initiative does not stem from any private, political or business interests" and is an "independent and apolitical movement." On the other, its members are urging Netanyahu to accept the Saudi peace initiative aimed at reaching a deal with the Palestinians.
Furthermore, the group also refused to disclose its sources of funding, but Channel 2 News reporter Amit Segal said the main donor is Texas-based businessman Daniel Lubetzky, who is also associated with the Victory 2015 campaign, which is openly seeking to unseat Netanyahu.
