Opposition leader and Zionist Union party chief Yitzhak Herzog has announced he is suspending unity government talks with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, after the premier issued an invitation to begin talks with Yisrael Beytenu party head Avigdor Liberman.
n a markedly abrupt, pithy press conference, Herzog said Netanyahu faced a choice between "going to war and funerals, and the victory of (Avigdor) Liberman and (Naftali) Bennett, or the track of hope" - namely, inviting the Zionist Union party to join the coalition instead.
"These are the choices - there are no other options," he added. "We won't continue negotiations at the same time - if Netanyahu wants to bring Liberman into (the government), he can let him in."
Vowing not to "allow Liberman to set the agenda," Herzog said he would continue to stand by his values which, in his words, were the only reason he had not already accepted Netanyahu's offers to join the government.
Herzog - who had reportedly been demanding the foreign ministry portfolio - further asserted that "the choice is between me in defense or Liberman in defense; between madness and sanity," referring to Liberman's demand for the defense ministry.

Nobody takes this nerd/turd seriously...
Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. Bougie takes himself seriously. So does Tzippy. So do some Zionist Union MKs. So does the MSM and O.
And Hillary! I forgot to mention Hillary!
Bougie Herzog is a legend in his own mind and for the rest of us, well, a joke.
Well, the people of Israel voted Left (1992), Center (2000) and then Right (2006) trying to search for peace but the Jews Never found what they call in Hebrew, a “PARTNER”.
So it goes...
The problem is, they only say the word. If they spelled it out, it would be p-i-e-c-e.
Gosh, does this mean Netanyahu's gov't is finished? ;') Thanks Eleutheria5.
Whenever that happens, let’s have elections, and let Beit Yisrael and Bayit Yehudi beef up their lists. I have a feeling they’ll need it. Just because he’s hated by the left doesn’t mean Bibi’s really right wing. Israel will survive after he’s gone.
I sure thought this article was going to be about Whitey Herzog and Joe Lieberman. I could not get the connection.
Then I decided (unFReeper like) to actually read the article. Liberman and Lieberman are spelled differently too.
I oughta start reading more than just the head line, I might learn more that way.
