Launching a vicious attack against former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Finance Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Sunday refuted claims by a former adviser that he engaged in criminal acts, including offering him $100,000 to murder a police officer.
Speaking to the media, Lieberman defended himself from the allegations against him. “Any reasonable person who receives an offer to kill a police officer is expected to run to the police,” he said. “The fact that he remembered 20 years later speaks for itself. This is a pathological liar and a pathological miser who is obsessed with money.”
Liberman then slammed Netanyahu, whom he blames for the claims against him, calling him “the trash of the human race who has no red lines.”
“This is Netanyahu’s methods,” Leiberman claimed. “It’s not the first time. The man is simply the trash of the earth and has no red lines. It’s clear that Netanyahu understands that the only thing that separates him from the government is Avigdor Lieberman. He’s in a panic, in hysteria. We’re the only right-wing party that declared we won’t sit with him. The one who separates Netanyahu from the government is me.”
In response to the above statement, the Likud party responded, “Lieberman, the national inciter, is under pressure. The man who suggested throwing the Chareidim into the dump now calls Netanyahu derogatory names like the last of the gangsters. We hope that he won’t offer anyone $100,000 to eliminate Netanyahu. Lieberman can stop hallucinating. The Likud and former prime minister Netanyahu have nothing to do with the disturbing allegations published against him in recent days.”
