JNS.org – Outgoing Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid delivered a parting shot on Thursday to Benjamin Netanyahu’s incoming coalition, calling it a “government of destruction” and vowing to return to power.

“This is not the end, this is the beginning of the fight for our beloved country,” Lapid said in a Facebook post. “We are fighting for the future of our children and we will not stop until we topple the government of destruction and return [to power],” he added.

The statement comes amid reports that Lapid and Netanyahu will forgo the traditional transfer of power ceremony when the new government is sworn in on Thursday.

The Likud Party released a statement saying that Netanyahu had not been offered the opportunity to attend such a ceremony.
