Following the request by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s lawyers to absent himself from his arraignment trial this Sunday, former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert attacked Netanyahu in an interview with Ben Caspit and Yinon Magal.
Olmert referred to Netanyahu’s request to be absent from his trial, saying that “he is not sure he should not be in meetings, there will be meetings where his presence could be useful.”
In conclusion, the former prime minister addressed the issue of annexation, claiming that “the prime minister is a pathological coward. He will do nothing when threatened, he won’t annex the territories as he didn’t annex the magnometers to the entrance to the Temple Mount.” Olmert warned against “unilateral annexation that this government is doing – it is an atomic bomb that can crush the stability of the Middle East, undermine everything that’s happening here, disrupt everything we’ve achieved in terms of political stability.”
