Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a campaign video on his Facebook page last week that criticizes former IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz for supporting the Iran nuclear deal.
“Fact: Gantz supported the Iran nuclear deal,” the video says.
Gantz is heard saying, “I see the half-full part of the glass here, keeping away the Iranians for 10, 15 years.”
The video then cuts to text that states, “Fact: Netanyahu objected to the nuclear deal.”
It then shows Netanyahu speaking before various groups as the narrator says, “He made a speech at the American Congress, sent the Mossad to Tehran to bring the nuclear archive, and convinced President Trump to exit the deal and to place sanctions on Iran.”
The clip ends with the statement, “Gantz: Weak Left. Netanyahu: Strong Right.”
The video is part of a long series of campaign videos that Netanyahu’s campaign has released ahead of the upcoming April 9 elections. It previously released a video saying if Gantz is elected prime minister, the government will be leftist, followed by clips of leftist political leaders who claim Gantz’s political views match their own.
