Netanyahu as North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un
Social media users mock Likud's petition proclaiming loyalty to Netanyahu
Israeli social media users post hundreds of memes and posts comparing the prime minister to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un after 40 members of his party signed 'unity petition' affirming Netanyahu 'is the only Likud candidate for prime minister'
Hundreds of Israelis took to social media to ridicule a “unity petition” signed by lawmakers from the ruling Likud party, proclaiming their loyalty to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

 

 

On Sunday, some 40 Likud members signed the petition, saying they will only accept Netanyahu as the party’s candidate for prime minister, “regardless of the election results.” Likud later issued an official statement affirming that Netanyahu “is the only Likud candidate for prime minister — and there will be no other candidate.”

Social media exploded with memes and humorous reactions to the petition, comparing Netanyahu to the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.  

 

 

Among those mocking the prime minister was Alon Pinkas who served as Consul General of Israel in New York City.  

 

 

He posted an image of Netanyahu that’s reminiscent of North Korean propaganda posters, with a caption: “Thank you to everyone who signed, I love you.”  

 

 

Netanya Mayor Miriam Feirberg also posted on her Twitter account, sarcastically referring to the fact the word “Netanyahu” sounds similar to the city she heads.

 

"Finally a proper government decision. Everyone is loyal, first and foremost to Netanya," she tweeted.
