Miri Regev Hijacks Cabinet Meeting to Worship Netanyahu: 'Like a King'

'It’s moving to the point of tears, thank you so much for what you’re doing for the state of Israel,' Miri Regev says

At Monday’s cabinet meeting, Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev suddenly turned to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and said: “You’re a great leader, even though some people in this country don’t like saying so or broadcasting it. But the truth must be told, you deserve being told: You have done us a great service, with much pride and dignity. I followed the reports of your deeds there and the honor you were given [in India], how you were treated like a king in India. It’s moving to the point of tears, thank you so much for what you’re doing for the state of Israel. I wish you many more years of activity.”

Netanyahu responded, saying: “Thank you very much, Miri, thank you. In the future we’ll refrain from outbursts.”
