Minister for Regional Cooperation Issawi Fridge Commented today (Saturday) on the departure of Shimrit Meir, the close adviser to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. He said at a cultural event in Holon: “I am in contact with Shimrit (Meir) and we talk all the time. The resignation of one of the prime minister’s associates does not stand in the air, and without addressing disagreements – this is one of the signs we are approaching the election.”
“Once you start thinking about election campaigns, you need the politicians and advisers you ran with in the past – by your side,” the minister added, “the fact that you start focusing on direction is a sign that your head is in an election campaign, not in action.”
Later in the conversation, he referred to the clashes that took place in Jerusalem during the funeral of journalist Sheerin Abu Akala and noted that this shocked me. “The conduct of the police at the funeral was a moral attack for Israel,” he explained.
The minister mentioned the funeral of Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, which led to many roadblocks across Gush Dan, noting that “despite the rush – no batons were used.” He continued to wonder: “I can not understand the police’s fear of Palestinian flags? The Palestinian flag is not a violation of the law, when I sit with Palestinian ministers, Israeli and Palestinian flags are laid on the negotiating table.”
Minister Farage also referred to the recent storms in the political system, saying: “If MK Moshe Gafni sees that we are holding out – he will be our partner. If I go through the parties you will see that they are all strong and standing.” He counted the names of his party, and in response to the mention of his name Yisrael Beiteinu, he was asked about MK Eli Avidar, who often expressed opposition to the various moves, saying: “If you remind him of Bibi twice – he will think twice, after years after years of demonstrations.” .
He complimented the latest moves in the right-wing party, noting that Matan Kahana’s resignation from the post of minister of religions, and his return to the post of MK – to lead to the dismissal of Yom Tov Kalfon – is a “brave, leadership and political move.” .
Another member of the coalition who received warm words from Minister Farage is the chairman of Raam Mansour Abbas. “No Arab MK has ever had the public courage to do what he did – a move that does not know the consequences,” he explained, “Do you know what he is going through in Arab society? Even Yahya Sinwar threatens him.” He added: “Abbas has made groundbreaking moves and I wish I was him.”
“Being a minister in the government, I suffer like I have never suffered in my life – my family and I receive a lot of curses and slander from Arab society and the joint list,” he added. “The economy has only declined. I suffer, but I see my role in this government as Arab and Israeli – as a mission.”
