Warning that the Jewish people are on the verge of a massive split Leader of the Opposition Isaac Herzo claimed that under his leadership the Jewish Agency will "deal with this great partnership" between Israel and and the diaspora.

"I was successful in all of my previous roles in (various) offices," said Herzog during a radio interview on Army Radio on Thursday morning.

When asked if it's a success to serve as leader of the opposition for five years and never reaching the office of Prime Minister Herzog said he does not believe in a "knife between the teeth" attitude.

"The Israeli center deserves a centrist leadership and not leaders who are carried away by the extremes," he said.

"Perhaps this is not suited for the age of Facebook where people just unpack (emotions) in five words," he said.

The reporters, Yaron Dekel and Amit Segel, joked with Herzog and offered to ask the "ceremonial" question regarding his interest in serving as president as his father, the late Chaim Herzog, did from 1983 - 1993.

"I do not deal with this issue", said Herzog in good spirit. 

While discussing the World Cup Herzog, who said he is sad due the English team not making it in the match against Croatia on Wednesday night, spoke about his joy at hosting Bobby Charlton in Israel while serving as Minister of Tourism.
