Liberman: Netanyahu would form coalition with Hamas if it meant immunity

January 13, 2020   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: , , ,

In a broadside against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Yisrael Beytenu party chairman Avigdor Liberman claimed on Saturday the Israeli leader would be willing to build a coalition with the Hamas terror group if it meant he could clinch parliamentary immunity from prosecution.

“The madness today is twofold,” the leader of the secular, right-wing party said during an onstage interview in the city of Netanya. “It is clear that Blue and White is [set on] building a coalition with the ultra-Orthodox and the Joint List, while Netanyahu wants immunity, even at the cost of a coalition with Hamas.”

Notably Blue and White has said, like Liberman, that it seeks a secularist, centrist government.

Commenting on the possibility that Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein will prevent the convening of a parliamentary committee tasked with voting on whether to grant lawmakers immunity, Liberman said, “If we are forced to enter a confrontation with him, so be it.”
