Netanyahu: I Prefer The Charedim To Lapid And Gantz


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made it clear Monday evening that he would not agree to a unity government and would prefer the charedi parties to a coalition with Blue and White leaders Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid.

The prime minister dismissed concerns over his having sat with Lapid in a previous government from 2013-2015, saying that he had been forced to sit with Lapid instead of the charedim by then-HaBayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett.

“Why did I take Lapid last time?” Did I wanted to take him? It was because Bennett forced me in. I wanted to bring the charedi parties in. I fought for it until the last minute, but I could not stop it,” Netanyahu said.

“Will they do this to me again? I do not know, but I will immediately turn to all the charedi parties to take them in.”

Netanyahu also added that may voted aren’t aware that a win for Gantz is a win for Lapid as well.

“How many [charedim] know that [the Blue and White party] is both Gantz and Lapid? People think that it is just Gantz, but after Gantz Lapid [will be prime minister]. It’s a rotation. If you vote for Gantz or allow Gantz to win you will get a government led by Lapid.

  1. Why bother voting for any of the candidates when they all end up the same lying politicians? Their promises are not even worth the paper they’re written on. They forget it the second they’re voted into office. Force President Trump to include Israel in the United States and vote for Trump. Anyone else, a waste of time.
