Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich reached across the virtual aisle on Monday to write on Prime Minister Binyamin's Facebook Timeline and challenge him to a debate.

"The time has come for a public debate on important topics so the citizens of Israel can choose," Yacimovich wrote, inviting him to a "televised debate as is accepted in the Western world."

"A campaign and election slogans may be an unavoidable necessity, but they cannot replace the real democratic expression – a debate," she added.

According to Yacimovich, the real choice is between her and Netanyahu, Labor and Likud-Beytenu.

"The public deserves it and we are responsible for a deep, real debate on two worldviews," she explained.
