A prominent Israeli military correspondent said on live TV that he was no longer certain he wants his children to stay in Israel.

Speaking on Channel 2’s popular Friday night news program, veteran journalist Roni Daniel said: “After this week, I’m not sure I want my children to remain here.”

Daniel was referring to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s surprise decision this week to bring the right-wing Yisrael Beytenu party into his governing coalition and appoint Avigdor Liberman as defense minister.

Liberman, a former foreign minister who is known for his hawkish views, will replace Likud’s Moshe Yaalon.
