Likud officials bash Barak for criticizing Netanyahu following signing of US military aid package

As former prime minister Ehud Barak continues to criticize Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, Likud officials responded: “Barak’s criticism of the military aid agreement with the US is ridiculous and motivated by his desire to return to the public sphere through a pathetic campaign on behalf of himself.”

3 years ago, Barak was in the government alongside Netanyahu. However, Barak has recently become an outspoken critic of Netanyahu as the reports of him trying to make a comeback into politics continue to surface. In the past 24 hours, Barak has continued to attack Netanyahu in light of the US military aid package for Israel. The Likud, Netanyahu’s political party, responded to Barak’s claims yesterday evening (Thursday).

Shortly after Barak spoke with Channel 2 News and said that Netanyahu “signed a humiliating deal,” Likud officials said that Barak was the most failed prime minister in the history of the country. “Even though he was kicked out after a year, during this short period of time as prime minister, he fled from Lebanon, abandoned Madhat Yusuf and many South Lebanon Army soldiers and failed in the negotiations with [Yasser] Arafat that led to the Second Intifada.”

“Barak’s criticism of the military aid agreement with the US is ridiculous and motivated by his desire to return to the public sphere through a pathetic campaign on behalf of himself,” Netanyahu’s political party added.
