Herzog rejects spokesman’s statement that settlers ‘destroying our future’

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) distanced himself from spokesman Ofer Newman Sunday, after the latter wrote a Facebook post accusing settlers of “destroying our future” and “trampling Jewish morals.”

Herzog took to the social media to explain that he believes in free speech, even when statements are controversial, and he encourages his staff to express their opinions and not be “yes-men.”

However, Herzog added, Newman’s post is “very critical, very blunt and very mistaken, because it creates a generalization that I am unwilling to accept and uses imagery that we may never use.
