Labor top politician Tal Russo slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday saying that "Netanyahu has a strategic goal, to shatter the Palestinian Authority" and that his end-goal is to annex the West Bank. 

The former IDF General said that "the IDF is fantastic, what we need is a political purpose." 
Calling Netanyahu " a master artist" Russo went on to say Israel "has no policy" and that "Arab states beg us for cooperation, they will do everything for us to take that chance and start a process...and we don't."

Russo also attacked Blue and White co-leader Yair Lapid who is meant to serve as Prime Minister should his party win the elections after Benny Gantz serves for the first two years. 

Blue and White "must give up on the rotation deal with Yair Lapid," Russo said, "and win two more mandates from the right."
