Edelstein and former Likud rebels say ‘I told you so’ on Gaza disengagement

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein gathered his fellow former Likud rebels who had fought to prevent the Gaza Strip withdrawal a decade ago, to deliver a message on Tuesday: “We are not here to say we told you so, but we told you so.”

Since the withdrawal, Edelstein has risen to become the parliamentary speaker, and MKs Gilad Erdan, Gila Gamliel and Haim Katz have become ministers. Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, who was also part of the rebel group but whose views have since changed, was conspicuously absent from the reunion in Edelstein’s office.
