After Israel's controversial Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed the previous coalition government as responsible for the security problems that have been going on in his country for a while, swords were drawn between the ruling and opposition once again. Former Prime Minister Lapid has described his successor, Netanyahu, as the leader of the most unsuccessful government in the country's history.
Lapid blamed Netanyahu, saying, "As our enemies shed the blood of our brothers in the streets, the Prime Minister is losing control of the people. Instead of holding press conferences and blaming someone else for the problems caused by the most radical and unsuccessful government in the country's history, it's time for Netanyahu and his ministers to take responsibility."
Naftali Bennett, one of the former prime ministers, interpreted Netanyahu's statements as "contrary to what Israel needs, divisive and shameful".
Former Defense Minister Benny Gantz said on his Twitter account, "Crying does not lead to leadership" for Netanyahu's statements.
Former Finance Minister Avigdor Lieberman also said that Netanyahu "proved that he is not a man worthy of fulfilling his duty as prime minister and that he does not take responsibility for his actions".
Liberman called on the Likud Party to expel Netanyahu from the party chairmanship.
The coalition government in Israel has been criticized for harming the country's government due to political instability and disagreements. Due to disagreements between different parties, progress cannot be made on many issues. In particular, the country's political, economic, military and judicial debates raise doubts about security and stability in the country.
