Yisrael Beytenu chief Avigdor Liberman harshly criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday, calling on him to resign.

"When on Rosh Hashana eve a Jew is murdered in Jerusalem; when before the holiday and during it there are riots and stone-throwing at the Temple Mount; when after the holiday an Iron Dome battery is deployed in Ashdod for fear of a response from Gaza to the renewed administrative detention of Muhammad Allan; and when we learn of a second straight month in which Israel's economic growth is lower than that in Greece; when all of these things are happening between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, the Jewish people should ask the prime minister, 'Where is the security' and 'Where is the money.'"

Liberman said that Netanyahu should ask for forgiveness from the citizens of Israel and particularly from those who voted for him over his "false promises that he made in which he vowed to preserve security and handle the economy."

"After asking for forgiveness, he should resign," Liberman added.
