Member of Knesset Ram Ben Barak from Yesh Atid sharply criticizes Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, stating that he is causing more harm to the State of Israel than the Iranians.
In an interview with "Kol Barama" radio, Ben Barak said, "Netanyahu is causing more harm than the Iranians; at least with them, we know how to cope."
Regarding Netanyahu's statements that the next stage in the judicial reform will involve changing the composition of the committee for appointing judges, Ben Barak stated, "I believe Netanyahu that the next stage is the selection of judges, and I am very concerned."
Ben Barak's party colleague, Knesset member Yoav Segalovich, also strongly criticized Netanyahu. In an interview with Radio 103FM, Segalovich said, "A chaos agent by definition, that's the Prime Minister today."
Segalovich added and said, "Netanyahu is a great disaster for the State of Israel, as of this moment."
Amidst this, a former Air Force pilot and current lawyer, Ofer Bartal, appeared on the program of Rafi Reshef on Channel 12 and stirred controversy when he referred to Prime Minister Netanyahu as an "Iranian spy."
Bartal, a former pilot and current lawyer, participated in the discussion on the program about the conflicts between the Supreme Court and the government. During the discussion, the question of what Prime Minister Netanyahu would do in the case of a constitutional crisis also arose.
Continuing the discussion, Bartal was asked about Prime Minister Netanyahu's conduct, and to the astonishment of everyone, he responded: "I think Bibi is already an Iranian spy." Bartal continued and asserted: "If there's anyone harming the state's security, its economy, and the state's governance, it's the Prime Minister attacking the state."
"It's worth noting that the participants in the studio were taken aback, and the program's host, Rafi Reshef, told him, 'Stop this, it's unnecessary and harmful to your argument.' Journalist Yaron Avraham also dismissed Bartal's claims and said, 'He's not an Iranian spy, far from it.'
The lawyer's statements sparked a storm on social media, with many people reacting to the extreme expression in disbelief."
