Herzog to Livni, Lapid: Either quit government, or don't criticize settlements

September 2, 2014 13:06

Opposition chief and Labor MK Isaac Herzog on Tuesday accused Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni for "having their cake and eating it too" by criticizing the government's settlement activity.

"Lapid and Livni have been criticizing the government for the past two days," Herzog said. "They must now move from words to deeds."

"These two are at the moment part of the government that has consistently done damage to the poor and middle classes," he said. "It is the same government that sabotages any chance for a diplomatic process that will protect Israel's security."

"This is a critical time in both the diplomatic realm as well as the economic one," he said. "Lapid and Livni need to choose between Netanyahu's path or a path that will extricate Israel from this crisis."
