Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom said on Tuesday, "Insubordination is unacceptable. It must be met with a brick wall." Speaking at a youth conference in Ben Gurion University of the Negev, the minister said he opposes disobedience "from the Left and from the Right."
Commenting on the arrest warrant issued against Opposition Chairwoman Tzipi Livni in Britain, he said: "This is a scandal that must come to an end. We are all Tzipi Livni – it's unacceptable that this persecution continues." (Ilana Curiel)
