Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters in Jerusalem on Sunday that the press was engaged in “whining” and “fear-mongering” over the imminent elevation of Avigdor Liberman to the position of defense minister in the place of the departed Moshe Ya’alon.

During a press conference alongside Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, the premier said that his “proven” track record in protecting Israel has shown that “I’ve haven’t done a bad job.”

“I am looking out for the country’s future,” Netanyahu said. “I’ve proven this as prime minister. In politics, a lot of things get said. I actually make an effort to say as few words as possible on a personal level. I don’t deal in words. I deal in deeds.”
