Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu took aim at Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Thursday evening during a Likud Hanukka candle-lighting ceremony in Or Yehuda, criticizing the prime minister for his passivity in the face of ongoing Kassam rocket attacks. "A leader needs to be an active authority, not a passive one - not [one of] restraint and inaction," Netanyahu declared, calling for Olmert to let the IDF do its job. Earlier, Olmert rejected Defense Minister Amir Peretz's call for a "limit" to Israel's restraint, affirming that Israel would maintain its current restraint policy despite the continuing Kassam attacks on the country.
