"The dam of confidence has been breached and the deluge has flooded every corner of the country," Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu told the Knesset after Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's speech Wednesday. "With you, politics comes before security matters," he said, directing his words to the government seats.
The Opposition Chairman added: "The nation knows: this government's senior leadership harms the democratic norms that were practiced here for years. This is a government that does not govern. This is a government of failure."
