Israel’s former leader of the opposition, Tzipi Livni, responded to Netanyahu clashing with Bennet and Shaked over who would fill the defense minister’s position following Avigdor Lieberman’s resignation.
Below are some of Tzipi Livni’s quotes on the matter.
“This attempt to conceal narrow political aspirations behind security considerations will fail. There has never been a more cynical use of matters of defense for political purposes—by Bibi, Bennett, and Lieberman” – Tzipi Livni, Ynet News, 19 November 2018
“The debate is no longer about who will be the defense minister in the Netanyahu government, but rather who will replace him, and the reins of national security must be in our hands.” – Tzipi Livni, Viral Show 24/7, 19 November 2018
