"Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid will win the elections," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview to Radio 103FM on Sunday.

Netanyahu claimed that the Blue and White party is "leading by several mandates." Netanyahu also warned that if the Likud does not win the elections, the citizens of Israel will "wake up with Yair Lapid as prime minister."

The Prime Minister also revealed that if his party wins the elections and is tasked with assembling a government, Netanyahu would create a coalition with "Avigdor Liberman's Yisrael Beytenu, Naftali Bennett's New Right, the Union of Right Parties and Moshe Feiglin's Zehut."

"They call me a traitor but I'm driven out of a mission. They can not really stand up to the tremendous achievements I have made over the last decade. I turned the State of Israel into a global power. All world leaders come here," Netanyahu claimed. "Last week I was at US President Donald Trump's and brought US recognition of the Golan Heights. I was with Russian President Vladimir Putin and I brought Baumel's bones. The president of Brazil was here, and the Chinese and the Japanese and the Africans and Latin America. We made a tremendous revolution."

Netanyahu also claimed that the Blue and White heads wish "to replace me and lead a left-wing government. They intend to lead Avi Nissenkorn's economy. They intend to uproot 90 thousand Jews to achieve peace with the Palestinians. My way is different. I strengthen our military, our cyber capabilites. I use a combination of financial, economic and intelligence capabilities and see political successes as we have never seen before. I met with the leader of Oman, and I cannot disclose which other Arab leaders I meet with, but Israelis fly to India with planes that go over Saudi Arabia."


"Gantz supported the Iran nuclear deal and Lapid told me to destroy our relations with the US. If it wasn't for me we would not have been here right now," Netanyahu disclosed.

Netanyahu concluded by saying that Gantz and Lapid "cannot answer my achievements so they make up lies to try and slander my name."
