“What is clear to me is clear to Benjamin Netanyahu,” said the official. “(…) However, we have seen more than once that Netanyahu’s considerations are personal,” lamented Barlev, who will leave his post in the coming days as part of Poer transfer.
He also stressed that “Israeli society is becoming more violent” as demonstrated by the victory of the Religious Zionism alliance, which won 14 out of 120 seats in the Knesset (Parliament).
The coalition, which supports Netanyahu, is headed by the deputies Itamar Ben Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich, both openly extremist, racist and anti-Arab.
Ben Gvir will be Barlev’s replacement, although the Ministry will be called “of National Security” after the expansion of its powers.
Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) spokesman Mohammed Hamada warned Ben Gvir of the consequences of damaging the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site for Muslims, and also revered by the Jews, because their two biblical temples were built there.
