Union of Local Authorities chairman Shlomo Buhbut called Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu "Ahmadinejad" because, according to Buhbut, Netanyahu was using excessive force to quell protests by local authorities over budget cuts over the past days, Israel Radio reported. Buhbut was making a reference to measures taken by Iran's president following the contested elections there in June. Buhbut told local authority heads on Monday that when he saw police officers arrest drivers of trucks brought to the protests he felt he was in Iran. Buhbut later told Israel radio that he was made the statement at a moment of great anger.
