Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman gave a speech at the Ariel University and said: "I'm fed up with the complaints and whining over the social situation. There are many genuine problems but people must realize where we live – there is a need for security funding."
Lieberman also commented on Labor Party Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich, and said: "Don't buy into the bluffs and Bolshevik propaganda – I listen to Yachimovich and it sounds like Lenin. There are no tycoons left, only bankrupts." (Itamar Fleishman)
