Gaza, ALRAY - Israel Labor Party Chairman and Opposition leader Isaac Herzog considered the UK parliament's decision to recognize the Palestinian state a resounding failure for Israel.
He blamed on Tuesday Israel prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu , saying that " it is another failure in the path set by Netanyahu and Avigdor Liberman the Israeli foreign minister .
"A cold wind is blowing toward Israel from every corner of the world, yet the prime minister and foreign minister refuse to face the facts, and are bringing a harsh diplomatic storm upon us,” he said.
He noted that if he were the prime minister, he would embrace the initiative of Egyptian President Fattah Abdel Sissi with both hands.
The British parliament voted Monday in favor of the non-binding motion in a majority vote of 274-12.
