Welfare and Social Services Minister Isaac Herzog on Monday called on Defense Minister Ehud Barak to file a complaint to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu concerning comments made by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman to foreign ambassadors on Sunday. Lieberman had told the ambassadors that he did not think a comprehensive peace in the Middle East could be achieved within ten years or even 20. Herzog urged Barak to ask Netanyahu whether Lieberman's words reflected the government's views, adding that saying such things to foreign ambassadors damaged to Israel's credibility all around the world.
