Channel 14 presenter Shai Golden, who has publicly supported Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, believes he should step down.

In an interview with Kan Tarbut, he says: "I assigned a wild awakening. Whoever after October 7 didn't get a kaffa that woke him up, I don't know what will wake him up in this life.
"This is a formative event of historic magnitude for the State of Israel and the Jewish people. There are insights that can be distilled from this: I, for example, supported Prime Minister Netanyahu for the past few years, I thought that at least in terms of security he was the right person in the right place. After October 7, I realized I was wrong. The man is unfit for his job and unfit for his job. In the test of history, it failed in a way that will reverberate for decades to come.

"Netanyahu's historical irony is that he wanted to be remembered as the defender of the people of Israel, and what will they talk about him in two hundred years? Just about that. On his watch, one of the worst massacres of the Jewish people happened."
About a month ago, Golden expelled retired Tantz Dubi Jung from the Channel 14 studio, who called Shikma Bressler and the protesters "Jewish ISIS forces." Golden said at the time: "No Jew can be defamed, it's shockingly ugly. They won't call a Jew a Nazi and stay in this studio."
