Responding to the political events on Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv on Thursday, Defense Minister Ehud Barak called for calm.

"I call on everyone to show responsibility. The country is facing fateful decisions and we all want a strong and secure Israel. There are differences among us. There always have been and will be," Barak said.

"But these must worked through a different kind of public dialogue, one which is moderate, responsible, and without the word traitor. One which is without violence. Difficult challenges lie ahead, but we must remember that we are all, at the end of the day, brothers," the defense minister added.
