Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai seemed to test the waters on national issues ahead of a possible run for Labor’s leadership Wednesday.
Speaking at his annual Rosh Hashanna toast, Huldai’s speech went beyond local Tel Aviv issues, touching on the Arab-Israeli conflict and international relations.
“The State of Israel has a great challenge,” he said. “Israel’s international standing has deteriorated. Our image in the media is not great. All [the world] sees in the media is soldiers and price tag. There is the BDS movement that wants to boycott us and our products.”
