Gal-On: Israeli coalition heads don't really seek peace with Palestinians

Meretz chairwoman Zehava Gal-On accused the government coalition on Saturday of not truly wanting to advance negotiations with the Palestinians in order to reach a peace deal.

Israeli Radio cited her as telling a gathering of the Meretz Youth movement that the current leaders of the coalition could be replaced with a government that would progress the peace process.

Gal-On likened Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu (Likud), Economy Minister Naftali Bennett (Bayit Yehudi), Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beytenu) and Finance Minister Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) to a modern rendition of the four sons from the Passover Haggada - "wicked, wicked, wicked, and the one who does not know how to quit."
