President Rivlin criticizes Netanyahu’s Congress speech

President Reuven Rivlin, who will decide the country’s next prime minister, appeared to criticize Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s intention to speak to Congress at a speech at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv Sunday night.

Rivlin spoke out against recent political discourse and “shallow” campaign tactics in general. But his speech was interpreted as singling out the prime minister and his intention to deliver the most important speech of his campaign in English in Washington.

“I believe that if we consider it fitting, to speak on the international stage about the dangers lurking and threats we face, all the more so, we should be talking directly, patiently and in Hebrew to our citizens at home,” Rivlin said.
