Netanyahu to opposition: You only have one option – support gov't

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for the opposition to support the political moves being made by the cabinet, despite their disagreements.

"When fighting to renew peace talks in a real way, we do this together. I am not asking of you, members of Knesset, more than I have asked from my opposition colleagues when I was in that position just a short time ago. Regarding the security of the State of Israel and its foreign policy, you have one choice: Don't bite for the sake of biting. Don't look for all kind of excuses in order to explain why you don't support policies that you know are just and right. You have one choice: support the government of Israel at this time, Israel must be united when faced with attacks from without".he said
