In our government, everyone talks whenever he pleases about whatever he pleases. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman acts like the neighborhood bully; his style and statements suit the extreme right's worst thugs, who do what they want in the territories.
Lieberman sends Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to hell and threatens the Assad family's rule in Syria. These opinions won him 15 Knesset seats, a considerable number, of pure radical right. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cannot pretend he didn't know whom he was appointing foreign minister and what could be expected from him.
