Israel’s Lieberman says not backing Netanyahu or Gantz for PM


Jerusalem (AFP) – Israeli ex-defence minister Avigdor Lieberman said Sunday he will not endorse either Benjamin Netanyahu or Benny Gantz for prime minister following last week’s deadlocked elections. 

Lieberman, who could potentially play a kingmaker role, spoke to journalists as Israeli President Reuven Rivlin began meeting political parties on who they will back for prime minister. Lieberman’s nationalist Yisrael Beitenu party was due to meet Rivlin later Sunday.

  1. No more info at Breitbart than there is here… sketchy.

    Not that I would endorse ANY of those degenerate miscreants either.

  2. Read at Unz Review that if Liberman’s YB party backs Benny boy, Benny boy becomes PM (Benny the Yahoo got 55 seats and Gantz 44…YB holds 8 seats and 61 seats is required for party boss to become PM.) Supposedly Gantz is trying to get Joint List (a group of Palestinian parties) as well as YB to side with him. I said it before–Jews are walking contradictions, but so I guess are some Palestinians!
