Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog said Wednesday morning that Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon's decision to implement a pilot project to separate Israelis and Palestinians on buses in the West Bank, would add flames to the fire of hatred towards Israel. 

"The decision to separate Palestinians and Jews on public transportation is an unnecessary humiliation that is a stain on the state and its citizens," Herzog wrote on his Facebook page. 

"This is another one of the prime minister's [Benjamin Netanyahu's] mistakes who is giving in to and supporting a horrible decision that has no connection to the security of the state," the opposition leader added.
