On video: Gantz: "We are facing a security disaster - parts of the government are fueling terrorism (Knesset channel)
Opposition Chairman Yair Lapid today (Monday) attacked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following the settlers' disturbances in Hawara.
"Netanyahu and the Likud formed a government with people who marched and sang 'Let your village burn,' so now these people have burned a village," Lapid said at a faction meeting There is a future in the Knesset. "Instead of the security forces going after the murderers of Hillel Weigel, they should deal with Jewish terrorism,
according to him, "What happened last night is complete anarchy. This anarchy is created because in this government everyone has their own policy. There is one policy, Smotrich, the political arm of the Hill Boys, has a second policy, Galant has a third policy and Netanyahu is weak and unable to put them in place."
Lapid was asked about the words of former Prime Minister Ehud Barak in favor of refusals following the legal revolution: "I am against all refusals but it is impossible not to understand them. I understand them but they are wrong."

The chairman of the state camp, Benny Gantz, said at the faction meeting that "We are facing a security disaster - parts of the government are fueling terrorism, Netanyahu is degenerating us into a dangerous security reality." According to him, "What happens in Jordan will end in Tehran.
The important summit turned into a strategic mishap - the Prime Minister answered the Americans, the Egyptians and the Jordanians with humiliation.
This is both cowardice and lawlessness."
Labor chairman Merav Michaeli said at the beginning of the faction meeting that "yesterday in Hvara, Jewish terrorists did an act that should not be done. Slowly but surely Netanyahu raised them and nurtured them, brought them into the Knesset and into the government. They are threatening to bring down the house on us. This racist government does not disavow or condemn these armed militias."
She added that "the Hvara rioters are not only counting on the fact that they will not stand trial in a military court, but they are counting on the fact that they will not even be arrested after the coup d'état. It is time to face reality, it is either a dictatorial Halacha state or a Zionist and liberal democratic state. Therefore, We must not make compromises or submit to the spins of negotiations. This is the time to build a political force that will rebuild the State of Israel."
Regarding the call for refusal following the legal revolution, Michaeli said that "in Israel there are clearly illegal orders and they should be refused. Orders with a black flag flying over them should be refused."
