Quotes

Netanyahu was livid, and as Deputy Minister Ofir Akunis said this week, "Lapid opened the floodgates to criticism regarding construction in Jerusalem. Not [U S President Barack Obama or the Arabs, but a government minister. It's utter hypocrisy on his part to speak against building in Jerusalem, when prior to the elections he supported it."
"A public representative should take part in the family's bereavement in tough times and go to the funeral," Margi wrote. "If there is no minister available, it would be appropriate for an MK to take his place."
