Galon Accuses Netanyahu of 'Rewriting History'


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the chairwoman of the extreme leftist Meretz party, MK Zehava Galon, got into an argument at the Knesset plenum on Wednesday.

The argument began when Galon, in a speech at the plenum, accused Netanyahu of trying to “rewrite history” and of failing to recognize the Palestinian Arab history of the conflict, while demanding that the Palestinian Authority (PA) recognize Israel as a Jewish state in order to achieve peace.
