Strains emerge between Israeli PM, foreign minister
Jerusalem: Benjamin Netanyahu has rebuked his combative foreign minister for attacking members of the Prime Minister`s Likud party, pointing to the strains within Israel`s coalition government.
Avigdor Lieberman criticised the Likud leaders for opposing his initiative to investigate human rights groups critical of the Israeli government.
Netanyahu`s office said on Tuesday that the Prime Minister "utterly rejects" the comments and said Likud is a "democratic and pluralistic party and not a dictatorship of one opinion”.
Lieberman is trying to get Parliament to launch an inquiry into the sources of funding for Israeli human rights groups. In a rambling press conference on Monday, Lieberman called the groups "terrorist collaborators”.
