Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) accused former prime minister Ehud Barak of refusing to accept the will of Israel's voters after the latter called on the people to topple the government if it doesn't change course at the Herzliya Conference.

"Ehud Barak refuses to recognize Israeli democracy and Israel's citizens' choice of a nationalist government," Ariel stated.

"Israel has still not recovered from Barak's short, but failed premiership, and here he is threatening to topple the government," Ariel said. "He's like a pyromaniac who started a big fire and then gives advice about how to put it out."
