National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir responded this morning to Gantz and Liberman's stated readiness to enter into an emergency government that so long as they support crushing the Hamas government, they are welcome.
In his statement to the press, Ben Gvir said: "So long as the basis of agreement for entry into the government is that the mission defined for the IDF by the government is complete victory and the crushing of Hamas' military and political power, Otzma Yehudit will welcome such a broad emergency government. Israel is facing an emergency. We must unite and win."
Yesterday (Sunday), State Camp Party chairman Benny Gantz held a press conference where he said "In this time, when the best of our sons and daughters are enlisting in the reserves, when we mourn hundreds of killed, when we all pray for the well-being of thousands of wounded, kidnapped, and missing, we must also take responsibility and enlist as leaders. This is the time to unite the leadership ranks for time of war.
"I informed the Prime Minister that I am ready to present myself at the front and discuss the joining of the State Camp and hopefully other opposition parties to the government, with the aim of creating a war cabinet, which will manage the Gaza theater, and all the other theaters. If we are given a real chance to influence and participate in the running of the war, we will enlist until its end. And if he chooses not, the defense establishment and the government will receive backing from us in the State Camp from the outside for any determined and responsible move."
