With the Israeli political establishment still up in arms over French cellular giant Orange’s plans to end its business arrangement in the country, opposition leader Isaac Herzog took to the airwaves on Friday and accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of failing to adequately address the specter of anti-Israel boycotts.
“Netanyahu has failed in dealing with this boycott,” Herzog (Zionist Union) told Channel 2. “He is incapable of overcoming it. Instread, he is leading us to a Jewish-Arab state.”
“It is now 48 years since the outbreak of the Six-Day War,” he said. “We have never been closer to a Jewish-Arab state of six million Jews and six million Arabs. This, among other things, is what is fueling that same campaign.”
