Quote of the Day

I want to relate, once and for all, to the issue of [assassinating] Haniyeh. I submitted an organized plan to the Security Cabinet. My position was clear and the one who stopped all plans, the one who prevented every initiative for an attack, was Netanyahu... everything we do, instead of initiating and leading, we respond and get dragged into things. More than once I brought requests and plans and recommendations to the Cabinet to act, to return to the policy of targeted assassinations. I am sorry to say, the one who stopped it, the one who blocked it, was Netanyahu

  -- MK Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beyteynu)

as far as I know, this is the first time Lieberman is commenting on his unfulfilled promise to assassinate Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas within 48 hours of becoming Defense Minister - a promise that has become somewhat of a national joke. And suddenly he is blaming it all on Netanyahu. I'd like to hear responses form other Cabinet members, but I doubt anyone would say anything, let alone the truth.

  1. If it wasn't within his authority, and since he'd been in government at a high level for long enough to have a feel how things worked, he had no business promisng something he didnt' have the authority to deliver on. Netanyaho was within his rights to look at whatever plans were brought and say, "yes" or "no". And Netqanyahu had no responsiblity to deliver on a promise HE didn't make. Lieberman doesn't look any less foolish and ineffective by adding this explanation. If anything he looks worse.
