Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid assailed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of the Iranian nuclear negotiations during Wednesday morning’s opening of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee in Jerusalem.
“Netanyahu is no [Winston] Churchill after World War II,” the former finance minister said. “He’s Golda Meir after the Yom Kippur War.”
“The Iran nuclear deal is Israel’s biggest foreign policy failure since the establishment of the state,” Lapid said. “It was possible to achieve a better deal, particularly when it comes to the inspections aspect.”
