Edelstein announces he will challenge Netanyahu over Likud
Though Edelstein already announced his intentions, he told it to the cameras for the first time on Monday night.

Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu’s No. 2 in Likud, Yuli Edelstein, officially announced in an interview with Channel 12 on Monday evening that he will run against Netanyahu for the Likud leadership whenever a primary will be held. Edelstein already told The Jerusalem Post in June that he was ready to challenge Netanyahu. But this was the first time he said it before the cameras. No date has been set for the next Likud primary, and most of the candidates want to wait to set a date until after the Knesset votes on bills aimed at preventing Netanyahu from running again. But Edelstein said he wanted the race held “as soon as possible.”

“We will always stay in the opposition with Netanyahu,” Edelstein said. “Netanyahu has already tried four times, how can we succeed with him the fifth time? With Netanyahu we will never return to power.”

Likud MK lashes out at Edelstein: He was subversive and will remain subversive
MK Shlomo Karhi attacks MK Yuli Edelstein, who announced he would run against Netanyahu for the Likud leadership.

Shlomo Karhi.

MK Shlomo Karhi (Likud) on Monday lashed out at MK Yuli Edelstein, after Edelstein declared he would run against Benjamin Netanyahu for the leadership of the Likud. “Were you looking for someone to defect to the government of fraud? You got it,” he said. “Stunning. In the midst of the fight against the first anti-Zionist government, a fight in which the entire national camp is united behind the only leader the people of Israel currently want, Netanyahu, Yuli is engaged in infighting.”

“With a rate of support striving for zero and a passion for a position he will never reach, he weakens the entire opposition in a classic Sa'ar-like subversion as if without him the national camp would be sentenced to life imprisonment in the opposition. It remains to be seen whether he will stay in the Likud or defect to the left like his loser friends.”

“It’s one thing to do nothing, but nothing(!) since the fraudulent government was formed for the benefit of the Likud or the Israeli public, but now also to come and try to disintegrate us and engage in internal quarrels instead of focusing on overthrowing the most dangerous government the people of Israel have had? There is no shame.”
