Facebook Debate: Should Noam Shalit Thank Bibi?

A fight broke out on Facebook this week when Attorney Yossi Fuchs, a candidate in the Likud party primaries, criticized Labor party candidate Noam Shalit over his call to replace “this bad government.”

“In his place, he should hold a constant vigil next to the home of Binyamin Netanyahu, like he knew how to do for years without seeing the tears in the eyes of the hundreds of bereaved families whose loved ones’ murderers were likely to go free for the sake of releasing his son,” Fuchs wrote. “But this time not a protest vigil, but a vigil of thanksgiving to Netanyahu for returning his son Gilad alive and well, because without this ‘bad’ government, Shalit could, G-d forbid, have been part of the circle of bereaved families – like Prime Minister Netanyahu himself.”

The post got thousands of “likes” and many responses.
