Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has a BIG problem on his hands.
ANOTHER member of Knesset (MK) has quit.
Meretz MK Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi recently sent a letter to Bennett and his alternate Prime Minister Yair Lapid saying that she was refusing to be a part of their coalition any longer.
She cited “intolerable” actions by Israel recently.
This means that Bennett’s coalition is now in the minority, 59-60.
He did have the majority just a short time ago, before Idit Silman quit.
The majority is now led by former prime minister Bejamin Netanyahu’s Likud party.
Zoabi said in her letter that she was quitting because “Unfortunately, in recent months, out of narrow political considerations, the leaders of the coalition have chosen to bolster its right-wing elements.”
“No more. I can no longer support the existence of a coalition that harasses the Arabs in such a disgraceful way,” she concluded. “When it came to the needs of Arab society and communities, housing, employment and education, they were indifferent.”
