Benjamin Netanyahu's son Yair was interviewed by One America News
, and said Naftali Bennett is a left-wing puppet:
Former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s son Yair, in an interview with a US media outlet, described the current Israeli government as the most radical, left-wing and Islamist in the country’s history, and led by a “puppet” of the left.
Netanyahu told the far-right One American News Network on Friday that Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s government does not have legitimate support from the public.
Oh, it's just like Times of Israel to immediately declare such a TV channel "far-right", all for the sake of invalidating the arguments at hand. Their editor should be ashamed, as should the reporter.
In his first interview with US media since his father was ousted from office last month after 12 years in power, the younger Netanyahu lashed out at Bennett and his coalition partners.
Bennett, he said, agreed to form a coalition with “all the left-wing, communist, most radical parties in the Israeli parliament” to “become their puppet prime minister.”
Whether or not one agrees with junior Netanyahu's viewpoints, one thing is clear: Bennett acted most disgracefully, and is guilty of political hijacking devoid of altruism. I will say it's a shame the Likud had to rely on the Haredi parties, something that may have come back and bit them in the ass. But that still doesn't excuse Bennett and Yair Lapid's conduct, which is otherwise dreadful.
