Public Diplomacy Minister Yuli Edelstein described outgoing Defense Minister Barak as "the worst defense minister there ever was for Jewish settlement," in a statement minutes after Barak announced his resignation Monday.

Today, he declared, is "the Likud's independence day," a play on the name of Barak's break-away party, Independence. Edelstein, however, said he won't be surprised if Barak takes the first opportunity available to find a reason to return to politics.
