Lieberman Ousts Deputy FM Danny Ayalon From Yisrael Beiteinu List

Ayalon, who sparked outrage in 2010, after making Turkish ambassador to Israel Ahmet Oguz Celikkol sit in a chair lower than his during a meeting, is among the most senior members of the party who won't be running in the next election.

Foreign Minister and Yisrael Beteinu Chairman Avigdor Lieberman has apparently ousted MK Danny Ayalon, his deputy foreign minister, from the party list to run in the next Knesset, a source within the party said.
