Israeli schisms increase amid calls for arresting Gantz, Lapid
Israeli media talk about the political division in "Israel" between the government and the opposition, highlighting the accusations of the two parties amid demonstrations of thousands of settlers against Netanyahu government.
Political divisions in "Israel" between the government and the opposition are escalating in light of the exchange of accusations of responsibility for the possible outbreak of an internal war, as "Israel" is witnessing demonstrations by thousands of settlers against the government of Benjamin Netanyahu.
After former occupation security minister, Benny Gantz, said that the internal war will be the responsibility of Prime Minister Netanyahu, Knesset member Zvika Fogel called on Tuesday for the arrest of Gantz and Yair Lapid on charges of treason, according to the Mafzak Live website.
"This issue has not been removed from the agenda, but it is getting more intense," the website stated.
Israeli official Almog Cohen said in an interview with the Israeli Channel 13 that "if Lapid and Gantz do not stop dividing, inciting, and wanting bloodshed in the streets, they will be arrested."
Gantz responded to this, addressing Netanyahu directly by saying that "Israel needs broad consensus, not continued division, incitement, and rifts."
Gantz emphasized Netanyahu's actions against the rights of an individual and against basic principles, and called on him to "condemn attacks on protesters and harsh statements, and work to unite divisions" rather than intensifying them.
Yair Lapid also responded to the attack on the demonstrators, saying, "This is how institutions collapse in one day."
"Knesset member Fogel says that Benny Gantz and I should be arrested for treason and should be put in jail, because we spoke against the government. We will not allow them to step on us," he added.
On his part, Ynet reported that Netanyahu spoke to the Israeli president saying: "In a democratic country, they do not arrest opposition leaders, just as they do not say that cabinet ministers are Nazis and that a Jewish government has a Third Reich, and they do not call citizens to civil rebellion."
Gantz to Netanyahu: 'Responsibility for civil war will be on you'
Earlier today, former Israeli occupation Security Minister Benny Gantz called on Sunday Israeli settlers to take to the streets in protest of changes to the Israeli "judicial" system that Benjamin Netanyahu's government proposed.
In a party meeting, Gantz said the majority of Israelis oppose what he described as a "coup d'etat".
Last Wednesday, Israeli occupation "Justice" Minister Yariv Levin announced what he called the first phase of the occupation's government’s so-called reform plan, which includes creating an override mechanism for the Knesset to reinstate laws invalidated by the Supreme Court.
Thousands of illegal Israeli settlers marched in two rallies that roamed "Tel Aviv" on Saturday in protest of Benjamin Netanyahu's new government, regarded as "Israel's" most right-wing cabinet.
