Kadima MK Nachman Shai railed against the ongoing conflict between the Defense and Finance Ministries over defense budget cuts, saying Sunday the issue exposes government "weakness in public."

Slamming what he called Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's inaction, Shai said "before the prime minister goes to deal with Iran, I advise him to rectify the issues between two of his senior ministers."

Shai claimed he could not "remember such stormy media cacophony between the Defense Ministry and Treasury."

"The expense of this issue - two ministers beating each other - is at the expense of the public nerve... it reveals Israeli secrets and exposes weakness in public as the prime minister looks on from the sidelines," Shai commented.
