'Israel' in 'historic crisis' that threatens to destroy it: President
The Israeli occupation President says "Israel" is in one of the most difficult moments.
Israeli occupation President Isaac Herzog on Monday warned that "Israel" is in a "historic crisis" that threatens to destroy it from within.
"We are in one of the most difficult moments" that "Israel" has experienced, Herzog told about 100 mayors and local councils.
He continued, "It seems like a paradox, doesn't it? No missiles, no alarms, no red alert. But we all know deep down that this is a supreme national danger."
This comes as thousands of illegal Israeli settlers took to the streets of "Tel Aviv" again on Saturday, marking the ninth consecutive week of protesting the Netanyahu government's judicial overhaul bid.
On Wednesday, Herzog said that he is fearful for the fate of "Israel", saying, "All of us — are in a difficult hour of an internal, deep, and serious crisis that threatens us all."

"When will we stop? When blood is spilled?" Gantz said at a press conference in the Israeli Knesset, adding that "a civil war is coming and the coalition is running toward it with its eyes wide shut."
"This is a real emergency," he indicated.
