Ehud Olmert, The former Prime Minister of Israel, spoke this morning (Friday) with Nissim Mash’al on 103FM and concluded the year 2021, saturated with headlines. On the political level, he said: “I think the shoes left by Netanyahu are not that big, and Naftali managed to get into the position of prime minister. Bennett is surprisingly good.”
On the Leader of the Opposition Benjamin Netanyahu He said: “Netanyahu enjoys polls, he has finished his public mission and will no longer be prime minister. He is a ridiculous and compassionate pathetic figure, he is a miserable man who has lost his way.”
“He is not fighting in a political system, he is fighting in the State of Israel. The famous clip intended for the whole world in which he calls on elements outside the country and draws attention to the difficulties of the Israeli government is one of the growing points in Israel’s political history. Yesha, who lost all hope, “he added.
Olmert also referred to the abolition of the security of Netanyahu’s family members, saying that “his pathetic appearance when he threatened that the decision would cause them to be murdered or killed – is an appearance of someone who thought all government and political power were made to serve his and his family’s personal needs. A miserable man who lost his way. “
Olmert praised the government’s handling of the corona virus: “If there is one area where this government demonstrates decision-making and composure, it is this issue. We have passed the fourth wave exceptionally, better than any other country.”
“In my opinion, this is a masterpiece of responsible and correct management. This epidemic consists of many things. I am a citizen who looks at the reality around me, this epidemic is something that no one knew anywhere in the world. It has unexpected and known components and therefore can not be spoken in absolute terms. “We conduct ourselves in a responsible, considered and respectful manner,” he continued.
Olmert also referred to the government’s conduct in the Iranian nuclear context, clarifying: “The Iranian issue is the only issue where I have criticism of the government. On this issue, the government is trying to emulate the empty and provocative rhetoric of the previous government. We have no military option, I repeat. A military option. “
“We do not have an option for any one large, comprehensive operation that could cause a total disruption of what appears to be the Iranian nuclear program. We have many military options to disrupt the efforts that are being made or will be made in the future in Iran to reach nuclear capability. “In most of these years, without talking, bragging or provoking either the Iranians or the international community,” he continued.
He said, “Since the change of government in the United States, it has been said that Biden is weak and that Trump has been strong, with Trump being talk and nothing. “On the other hand, I would like to mention that the only government in history that has ever dropped a nuclear bomb was a democratic government.”
“America is a true friend of Israel. I know Biden well, I have known him in all his role, he is committed to the State of Israel. “The way is in reliability, openness, transparency and country. The fact is that for several weeks the President of the United States has not answered Bennett’s phones and it is a pity that he has an excellent basis for maintaining a relationship of personal trust with the President of the United States,” he said.
At the end of his remarks, he referred to the riots in the cities involved during Operation The Guardian, and claimed that “we are having a difficult experience, in my opinion very shaky on the issue of relations with Arabs in Israel.” “A breakthrough in the public discourse we have built with the Arab population, and we need to take advantage of this, and this government in this respect marks a very positive and optimistic turnaround.”
“I hope that this will bring about a change in the atmosphere of our relations with the Arabs of the State of Israel, and on the other hand I very much hope that the nationalist, violent elements among settlers and the Lehavah group will all be silenced in a democratic regime.”
