MK Zehava Galon: Why Doesn’t Netanyahu Call Abbas?


Meretz party Chairperson Zehava Galon spoke to ynet about Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s conduct regarding the abduction three yeshiva (Torah academy) high school students on Thursday by terrorists.

“Netanyahu’s first statement defected responsibility for the abduction, plunking it on the Palestinian Authority. I think that no insight- not diplomatic, not security-related, not operational, was used in this statement. What for? The PM should have just picked up the phone and called Mahmoud Abbas and tried to explore what could be done.”
