Meretz MK Esawi Frej slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for failing to prevent incitement by members of his coalition on Sunday.

"While the prime minister in a Facebook post calls 'to all the MKs to work to calm tensions on the issue of the Temple Mount,' Likud MK Feiglin visits the Mount, and Housing Minister Uri Ariel once again calls to change the status quo at the Temple Mount and wonders on his Facebook page 'if the Jordanians forgot the Six Day War.'"

Frej charged members of Netanyahu's coalition with "throwing political Molotov Cocktails in all directions." He facetiously said that they were serving as prime examples of coalition discipline.

"On the other hand, perhaps the coalition MKs understand  that there is a big difference between what Netanyahu says and his genuine expectations. That's the case as regards the two-state solution and the Temple Mount," Frej charged.
