Labor MK Bar: Netanyahu is fooling the Israeli public

Secretary General of opposition party Labor, MK Hilik Bar, attacked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Sunday for "fooling" the Israeli public, claiming that the makeup of the prime minister's new government is in fact "an ideological twin of the outgoing administration."
Using harsh words Bar stated that, "once again the Prime Minister has assembled a right-wing government with a few fig leaves in place with the hope that the citizens of Israel and the international community are fooled by the so-called 'centrist' elements of the coalition."
He also criticized Naftali Bennett, the head of the Bayit Yehudi party whom Bar branded an "extremist faction." Bar claimed that with Bennett and former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman taking part of the new government, "there is no chance of this new cabinet  moving Israel forward towards peace, or towards a more just society where the burden of living is shared equally amongst all citizens."
