Ongoing Gaza campaign unlikely to help Netanyahu stay in power, Israel’s former PM Ehud Olmert tells RT

Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu is unlikely to capitalize on the ongoing hostilities with the Hamas militants, former PM Ehud Olmert told RT, adding that the enduring occupation of the West Bank was a strategic mistake by Israel.

Speaking to RT’s Kevin Owen on Wednesday, Olmert neither agreed with nor rejected the widely-rumored idea that the new Israeli-Palestinian escalation has been deliberately orchestrated by Netanyahu to stay in power. But he said such a plan, even if it existed, was unlikely to work, given Netanyahu’s repeated political failures and dwindling support base.

I don’t think that anyone should want to capitalize on a military action against anyone. and I hope that [Netanyahu] does not have this in mind, but I’m not certain that even if he has it in mind that it would help him.
