Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called upon Blue and White leader Benny Gantz on Thursday to give up his hopes of breaking up his party or his bloc or ending his reign in the Likud in a New Year's toast to 2000 Likud activists at Expo Tel Aviv.

"There are those who imagine or have delusions," Netanyahu said. "First they thought they could break up our partnership in the nationalist camp, but that is stronger than ever. So now they think they can break up the Likud."

Netanyahu than asked the crowd: "Can they break up the Likud? Will you let them topple the head of Likud?" After the crowd shouted no, Netanyahu told Gantz to listen to the crowd, which was chanting "Bibi, King of Israel."

"You need to understand something about something about these people who are here: We go together in fire and water," Netanyahu said. 

He did not address his legal cases, despite expectations he would.
