Former MK Ami Ayalon on Sunday called on Defense Minister Ehud Barak to "accept responsibility for the consequences of the decision to raid [last week's Gaza-bound] flotilla."

Ayalon said the government showed "poor decision making" and that "the blockade became the policy objective instead of the means to achieve the objective."

He criticized Barak for leading a strong-arm policy without regard for international support for Israeli policy.
