Likud activists slammed for cult worship over Netanyahu ‘medallion of loyalty’
A video showing a senior Likud party member being adorned with a medallion featuring leader MK Benjamin Netanyahu’s image as a show of fealty has drawn comparisons of cult worship from rivals.
The video was taken during a Likud party event at a private home in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Givat Mordechai on Sunday evening, which was attended by several party MKs, including former finance minister MK Israel Katz.
The medallion features Netanyahu’s face along with a representation of the Israeli flag.
On Monday, Katz dismissed the significance of the incident, tweeting that he was not even aware that the necklace featured a likeness of Netanyahu.
