"And why has not Mr. Netanyahu asked for the resignation of Mr. Yishai whom he appointed? By retaining Yishai, Netanyahu has endorsed his actions." - Mark L Mark, you have in mind a Presidential system, but this is not the way it works in a coalition situation. While the Prime Minister can nowadays (not in the past) legally fire a minister, this power can be exercised towards ministers of his own party. If a minister of another party is fired without the consent of that party, the party will leave the coalition, bringing down the government. There is little Netanyahu can do to Yishai other than to talk in a way that will bring on Yishai his own party's unhappiness.
