Former Israeli PM warns of new Palestinian Intifada

Former Israeli PM warns of new Palestinian Intifada

Tel Aviv, Jan 10 (Prensa Latina) Former Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid joined the wave of criticism against the policies of Israel’s new far-right government, estimating that they could provoke another Palestinian intifada ("uprising" in Arabic).

Lapid made statements to the press condemning the actions of the Minister of National Security, Itamar Ben Gvir, including his recent entry into Esplanade of Mosques in Jerusalem, which sparked the wrath of Muslims around the world.

He warned that right-wing policies will also damage Israel’s relations with the United States, its main ally.

Days ago, former Prime Minister Ehud Barak questioned the new Executive, pointing out that it shows signs of fascism and that it has messianic racists among its members.

“The government is driving a coup in Israel right before our eyes, with its racism, corruption, emasculation of the justice system, politicization of the police and undermining of the chain of command in the army” Barak said.

Eight deans of law faculties of Israeli universities and colleges condemned the judicial reforms proposed by Justice Minister Yariv Levin on Monday.

Levin’s project includes an “annulment clause”, which would allow the Knesset (Parliament) to re-legislate laws invalidated by the Supreme Court of Justice.

The leader of the opposition party National Unity and until last week Defense Minister, Benny Gantz, also rejected the course of Netanyahu’s administration.
