Labor leader Avi Gabbay on Thursday mocked a video of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which the Prime Minister shows himself cooking eggs. 

Speaking at a conference of the Israel Democracy Institute, Gabbay said that Netanyahu might look good but doesn't actually know how to do the job.

"Look at the video, it looks fantastic," Gabbay said. "He is well dressed, well-behaved, speaks great, but he doesn't know how to make an omelet."

Gabbay equated the video with Netanyahu's rhetoric, saying that he knows how to speak about all kinds of issues, including about the cost of living and security, but that in reality he doesn't know what to do.

"We may need to replace the people who know how to speak well with people who know how to do good," the Labor leader concluded.

In the video posted on social media on Thursday morning, Netanyahu is shown throwing on an apron and preparing sunny side up eggs.


Once the eggs look ready the Prime Minister muses that this is what he knows about cooking before launching an attack on the Left.

" I know what they are cooking up," he said. "They are cooking up a left-wing government with the left-wing parties and the Arab parties."

"They are not fooling anyone," Netanyahu added.
