    Never mind the non-diplomatic way he deals with diplomats of friendly nations. The problem is that he is representing his OWN view, which is contrary to the Prime Minister's view. Netanyahu accepted the ideal of "peace within 1 year". Whether you believe Netanyahu's sincerity or not, this is the PM's public position. This Lieberman compares to "Czechoslovakia" in 1938. Lieberman did a similar thing at the UN, expressing his views which are contrary to the stated Netanyahu views. Netanyahu MUST remove this rogue FM from the Foreign Ministry. Being a political coward, Yahoo is afraid of the consequences, but the minimum he should do is replace Lieberman as FM even if keeping him as member of the cabinet. If the Lieberman party quits the coalition over this, they will be seen by the public as having quit at a critical time for an insufficient reason.
