Lieberman rumored about to step down as defense minister

Rumors were rife in political circles that Avigdor Lieberman is considering resigning as defense minister at the press conference he has called for 1 pm Wednesday after a meeting of his Yisrael Beitenu party. Lieberman was one of four ministers in the security cabinet who objected to prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s policy on the Gaza crisis and the resulting ceasefire, after a massive Palestinian barrage of nearly 500 missiles. There are calls in his own party and from opposition benches for Lieberman’s resignation.  Angry residents of Sderot, which took rocket salvo after salvo, rallied Tuesday night to protest Israel’s consent to a ceasefire without a major Gaza operation.

    Lieberman’ resignation for ONCE was the RIGHT thing to do……The Ex-defence Minister is not needed anymore as WEAK NAT has decided to have a New Defence Policy called Turning The Other Cheek.
    Weak in the Head Sort of Prime Minister is a Religious Cult Believer. The Black Cult Book he reads states Clearly that all the Jewish people should fron NOW ON if you are Attacked you must Turn the other Cheek and let your Enemies Kill you.
    I the Weak Prime Minister are very Sinister and as Promised I Can NOT Protect you and will not attack my enemy just to save another JEW…..Just Facts not Coward Fiction.
