The State Comptroller must release his full report on Operation Protective Edge “before [Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fails in the next war,” Labor leadership candidate MK Erel Margalit said Sunday.

Margalit launched an online petition on a website with the URL, “BB” referring to the prime minister’s nickname, Bibi.

“Since the report was leaked, Netanyahu has tried to discredit the State Comptroller, blame former members of the Security Cabinet for leaks and if we give him a bit more time, he’ll blame bad karma,” Margalit quipped. “There is only one person Netanyahu is unwilling to blame: Himself.”

Margalit called on Netanyahu to release the full report and “stop hiding,” because “bereaved families deserve to know what happened in the war and how to prevent the next failure.”

In a video posted on Facebook to promote the petition, Margalit said: “The state was paralyzed for over 50 days, people were in shelters, the economy crashed, Ben-Gurion Airport was closed.

“We will put on the table what Netanyahu is trying to hide,” Margalit declared.

Margalit, who plans to run for leader of the Labor party when it holds its next primary, has taken an aggressive tone in his campaigning, in contrast with the party’s current, soft-spoken leader, Isaac Herzog.
