It seems that at least one minister in “Blue and White” feels uncomfortable in his chair and tonight publishes an unusual post, in which he apologizes to Israeli citizens who are harmed by the closure, such as worshipers of synagogues that are closed by government order from tonight, criticizes the government
Criticism from the government: Tourism Minister Assaf Zamir, a senior member of the Blue and White party, criticizes the government against the government’s conduct, in the shadow of the decision to close. In a comprehensive post published tonight (Monday), he admits that he is considering resigning from the government every day, while not sparing criticism of the conduct of his faction either.
He explains why he opposed the government’s decision to impose a closure and apologizes to all the branches affected by the decision as well as to the worshipers of the synagogues that will be closed from the evening until the end of the closure.
In his remarks, he criticizes the conduct of the government and writes: “Most of all I am sorry that instead of lowering the flames of hatred, we are sitting in a government that incites them. In April, during the coalition negotiations, we talked about setting up a national reconciliation cabinet. It eventually became the basis for a lot of repression, but only a few months passed and the need for reconciliation was never present again. “
Minister Zamir notes that “all the wounds of Israeli society were exposed by the corona from the bottom up. The lack of governance in certain parts of society, the lack of police enforcement capabilities, zero mutual guarantee between different sections of the population and the health system. “The inspiration for another moment falls off our feet from a shortage of manpower. But above all, the leadership. A leadership of which I am a part and that does everything but set a personal example. Everything but be stately and unifying.

“I admit that I believed that it would be different and that this political partnership would stabilize and lead to moves that would unite society and take us out of the crisis,” Zamir adds, criticizing his own faction – the Blue and White faction. “So far they are not successful enough.”
On the possibility of retiring from the government, Minister Zamir writes, “I hear the voices calling for us to dismantle the government and resign. There is not a day that this option does not cross my mind and is stored in the closet when I think of an alternative. “Unknown and a growing damage to the delicate fabric of life in a society that in some days already feels to me about a total disintegration. In honor of Yom Kippur, it was important for me to share with you the thoughts that have been accumulating in me for a while.”
According to the Minister of Tourism: “For 12 years I have been elected by the public and more than once I have had to make controversial decisions believing that they are right for the citizens of the country and for my voters. The decision to be a member of the current government is I have known since I was born. My friends used to call our entry into the government an entry under the stretcher, but I always describe it as a jump on a grenade. “Persuaders and my political actions have hurt and are hurting you. I apologize for that today.”
