Likud MK Danny Danon on Sunday night denounced Ehud Olmert's attack on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, saying the former prime minister had no right to criticize the government given that he was recently convicted of breach of trust and in light of his past leadership failures.

Earlier Sunday evening Olmert accused Netanyahu of deliberately strengthening Hamas in order to convince the Israeli public that there is no Palestinian partner for peace.

Danon said that "if Olmert wants to protect the security of Israel then he should remain outside the political system so as not to cause any more damage."

Danon characterized Olmert's actions as a desperate attempt to generate headlines.
