Opposition Attacks Netanyahu For 'Adding Fuel' to Haters


Critics and supporters alike did not waste time responding to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's instructions on Wednesday, to cut governmental ties with the Palestinian Authority (PA), excluding the Defense Ministry and peace talks.

Opposition Chairman and Labor Party Chair Yitzhak Herzog, who has expressed support for dividing Jerusalem and withdrawing from most of Judea and Samaria, slammed Netanyahu's orders on Wednesday.

"The prime minister is putting gasoline and flammable materials in the hands of the haters of Israel, it's not clear what benefit will sprout from  this excessive step," claimed Herzog. "Netanyahu has started the process of Israel's disengagement from the world."
