Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer told Israel Radio Sunday morning that if there is no longer a political process with the Palestinians, including a discussion on core issues, that the Labor ministers will leave the government.

Ben-Eliezer said that "the coming weeks are critical, and that it will be decided in that time whether to begin talks on core issues or whether there will be continued foot-dragging that ends with a disaster for the state of Israel." He described that disastrous end as: "international pressure [on Israel], international isolation, the imposition of a solution on Israel and harm to its economy."
