Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman posted an apology on his Facbook page over recent statements he made about female politicians. "The Israeli public life, which often deals with hard and painful issues, should be occasionally seasoned with humor. I had no idea a tiny joke would make such a loud impact. My honest apologies to whoever was hurt by it."
Lieberman further wrote, "I will now sit alone in the dark and reflect on it some more." Last week Lieberman called Labor, Hatnua and Meretz chairwomen "The Polish trio." (Yuval Karni and Itamar Eichner)
