After snub, Bennett says Netanyahu ‘dangerously’ delegitimizing his government

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett hit back on Friday at opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu, saying the latter was “undermining the legitimacy” of his government by failing to acknowledge his presence while speaking a day earlier at an event to mark the departure of outgoing Shin Bet chief Nadav Argaman.

Netanyahu gave a long list of greetings to all the dignitaries present, but failed to acknowledge Bennett, leading to angry calls from some in the crowd, telling Netanyahu that “there’s a prime minister here.”

Hebrew media reported that Netanyahu decided to ignore Bennett in response to a supposed slight against his predecessor in Bennett’s own speech, when he said: “We are now in the age of we, not the age of me.”
