Israeli president warns against political infighting amid war with Hamas

Israeli President Isaac Herzog blasted political infighting between elected officials that he said only serves Israel’s enemies. 

“The enemy is waiting to see chasms among us, for us to start fighting with one another. It sees the confrontations, the ego battles and the political headbutting,” Herzog said in a primetime Address, The Times of Israel reported Sunday. “It celebrates every time disagreement drives us apart.”

“We must not return to the discourse of October 6, of us and them,” he added.Herzog was referring the political divisions that raged earlier this year over the hardline government’s judicial overhaul.

“We must not return to toxic discourse online. Anyone who returns us to the discourse of October 6 harms the war effort and citizens’ security,” he said.
