Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Sunday addressed the concerns of growing social and housing protests that saw over 300,000 people take to the streets Saturday. The foreign minister said that everyone's grievance is legitimate but that there are only so many resources available, warning against moving funding away from the defense sector.

Referring to the various protests taking place in Israel in recent months, Lieberman said, "Everyone is right: farmers, teachers, social workers, police." The question, he said, is what to do with all of those claims.
