Opposition Head MK Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) responded on Monday afternoon to the United Nation Security Council's Resolution 2334.

Herzog in a meeting on Monday said there has been a "total collapse" in the past few days of Israeli's foreign policy, and blamed it on Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Only six MKs attended the meeting.

"Euphoria, arrogance, and boastfulness have plugged Netanyahu's ears. This horrific UN Security Council resolution could have been avoided. We could have worked together with the US in a political fashion, and they would have vetoed the resolution," Herzog said.

Herzog also explained how he thinks Netanyahu failed economically, and failed to provide Israel with security.

"Rabin freed the Western Wall, and Netanayahu is endangering it. The paratroopers freed the Western Wall, and Netanyahu is gifting it to others. Rabin united Jerusalem, and Bibi has given Jerusalem away to save Amona," he said.

Herzog also called in Yesh Atid Chairman Yair Lapid to join his efforts against the government and his fight on social media. He also called on Kulanu Chairman Moshe Kachlon to leave the government immediately.

The current coalition has 67 mandates. If Kulanu's 10 mandates pulled out, it would topple the coalition.

"In light of the Prime Minister's recent behavior, I would like to cast doubt on his abilities to lead. Netanyahu has lost control and should be replaced," Herzog concluded.
