Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak called for a new protest movement to be established that would try to bring down Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government Sunday night at a speech in Herzeliya.

Speaking at an event launching a book by former general Shlomo Gazit, Barak said the new protest movement should promote dialogue among different Israeli sectors and have clear values.

"It should not try to be more Bibi than Bibi," he said referring to Netanyahu's nickname "it should restore the spirit of unity and hope."

Barack criticized the government's of a recent spate of fires and right wing politicians who rushed to call them all arson "this was populism and oversimplifying by those who see only black and white and especially black."
