Barak: PM Performed Well in Crisis

Defense Minister Ehud Barak at Sunday's cabinet meeting praised Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's handling of the weekend crisis in Cairo. Barak said that “the event was complicated and dangerous, a hairbreadth's away from the loss of life an major damage. Fortunately things ended properly.

“As politicians, we are very stingy in giving praise and credit, so in this case, as one who was so involved in the events and realizes how much worse things could have been, it is worthy to say that things ended as they did because of the Prime Minister's personal management of the situation,” Barak said.
