MK Michael Eitan (Likud) accused Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman (Israel Beiteinu) on Monday of stealing votes from the Likud party.

In an interview with Israel Radio, MK Eitan said that Lieberman always tries to compete with the Prime Minister and to steal votes from the Likud even though he knows that it harms the state.

If Lieberman wants to accuse specific organizations of committing acts of terror he should turn to Public Security Minister Aharonvitch. Knesset members do not need to investigate, but rather the police, the Shin Bet and the prosecution, Eitan continued.

This comes after the prime minister refused to support a bill introduced by Lieberman's Israel Beiteinu party which proposed the establishment of a Knesset committee to investigate left-wing NGO's suspected of harming the state. 

The prime minister on Thursday refused to support a bill introduced by Lieberman's Israel Beiteinu party which would have established a Knesset committee to investigate left-wing NGO's suspected of harming the state.
