MK Isaac Herzog (Labor) accused ministers in the government of wanting to retake control over Palestinian cities in the West Bank in an interview with Israel Radio Thursday morning, saying that the current government is being "led by pyromaniacs and those gripped by endless chatter."

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Herzog alleged, wants to "transfer" Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas from the top Palestinian post and impose Israeli rule over Nablus, Kalkilya and Tul Karem.

The Labor MK added that Israel should have supported the Palestinian bid to be accepted as a full member state in the United Nations as part of an arrangement to delineate borders through direct negotiations between the two sides.
