‘I recently found myself in strong disagreement with the prime minister on moral and professional issues,’ Ya’alon says of his resignation from politics.
“I saw before me the safety of Israel and its citizens in all of my acts and decisions, and the good of the country above all other considerations. This was so in security and professionals matters and in matters of values and rule of the law.”
Earlier on Friday, Ya’alon wrote on Facebook that “I notified the prime minister this morning that following his conduct in the latest developments and in view of the lack of trust in him, I am resigning from the government and the Knesset and taking time out from political life.”
“unfortunately, I recently found myself in strong disagreement on moral and professional issues with the prime minister, a number of ministers and several MKs.”
The rift between Ya’alon and significant parts of the Likud central committee and party voters widened over the past year over the obstacles the defense minister placed in front of efforts regarding construction in the settlements.
“But to my great sorrow, extremist and dangerous elements have taken over Israel and the Likud Party and are shaking the foundations and threatening to hurt its residents.”
“Sadly, senior politicians in the country have chosen the way of incitement and segregation of parts of Israeli society instead of unifying it and bringing it together. It is unbearable to me that we will be divided among us out of cynicism and lust for control, and I expressed my opinion on the matter more than once out of honest concern for the future of society in Israel and the future of the next generations.”
We can be pretty sure that this is the context in which Ya’alon resigned:
The average age of a Palestinian is less than 18 years old. It is the worlds largest explicit open-air prison… of mostly children. Collective Punishment [such as Palestinians by Israelis] is a war crime according to international law.
And these are the reasons why Spain has declared Benjamin Netanyahu a War Criminal:
Israel wants to quash an arrest warrant prepared by a Spanish judge for Benjamin Netanyahu over the deadly 2010 IDF attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla that killed ten people.
The Israeli PM and six other former ministers would be arrested if they set foot on Spanish soil.
“We consider it to be a provocation,” said an Israeli foreign ministry spokesperson. “We are working with the Spanish authorities to get it cancelled. We hope it will be over soon.”
Judge Jose de la Mata, who drew up the warrants, ordered the police and civil guard to notify them if any of the seven enter Spain.
Registration of Israeli PM as war crime suspect over Marmara raid was ‘a jurisdictional error,’ panel rules.
The Pro-Israel media reports.
There are many who are doing what they can to hold these war criminals accountable. That is the Tip of the Iceberg regarding the collective punishment Netanyahu has rendered upon the Palestinians. Just because there is a lack of jurisdiction doesn’t mean that Netanyahu is innocent of war crimes.
The Israelis have woken up that their government is a criminal corporations run by the Khazarian gangsters -with an agenda of genocide– and their Rothschild Zionism.
Life-sustaining Zionism and the seeds of fascism cannot live together…What has happened is a hostile takeover of the Israeli government by dangerous elements. And it’s just the beginning.”
“This government needs to be brought down before it brings all of us down. There are no serious leaders left in the world who believe the Israeli government.”
“And thus, overcoming our temerity, let each man choose: will he remain a witting servant of the lies, or has the time come for him to stand straight as an honest man, worth of the respect of his children and contemporaries?”
