Political storm makes more waves – Sources close to Kadima Chairman Shaul Mofaz slammed Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Friday, calling him a "doorman" at a bar and accused him of "harming Israel" by trying to find an alternative to the Tal Law. Meanwhile, a senior Likud official blamed Mofaz and his party for trying to stir a coalitional crisis with Yisrael Beiteinu, and pushing it to quit the coalition. "Kadima wants Lieberman's portfolio so they are trying to make him quit," said the official. "There is no other explanation for this behavior," he added.
Earlier, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Mofaz, and sources privy to the details of the meeting claim that Mofaz decided to retract his support for the inclusion of Arab army enlistment in the Plesner Committee recommendations. According to one of the sources, "the issue of Arab recruitment into the IDF was discussed during the meeting, and we are not clear why Mofaz decided to take Plesner's stance of excluding them from the new law."
