Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman spoke out on Tuesday against Arab countries that secretly cooperate with Israel, but refuse to acknowledge a diplomatic relationship. 

Paraphrasing a comment by Meir Dagan, he said "Israel cannot be the whore of the Middle East that everyone enjoys but no one admits their connections with."

Liberman's comments were made at a pre-Rosh Hashana toast with his Yisrael Beytenu faction.
