Likud MK Yuli Edelstein has announced that he will run for the Likud Party leadership, challenging current party head Benjamin Netanyahu. Edelstein made the announcement Monday night in a Channel 12 interview.

He says he’s made his decision “because the current government is simply dangerous for Israel”…..  and if Netanyahu remains as Likud head, “we will always stay in the opposition”.

Edelstein is a former Knesset Speaker, and the number 2. on the Likud Party list.

  1. “Yuli…why do think you have a chance?..”

    Because I share most of Bibi’s national security policies but I’m not an indicted crook who has repeatedly ignored the ethical rules applicable to public servants and I retain the respect of most Israelis on both sides of the aisle. Otherwise, you have a good point.
