Netanyahu: No intention of joining emergency gov't

Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu said there had been no discussions with the coalition about forming an emergency government and that he had no intention to take part in such talks. Netanyahu expressed his support for the IDF forces operating on the Gaza and Lebanon fronts but said that the current crisis did not call for the formation of such a government. "Israel is not in a crisis like the Six Day or Yom Kippur wars," Netanyahu told Army Radio, adding that the IDF would "overcome this terrorist threat."
