Kadima Council chairman Haim Ramon on Thursday morning called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to fire Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon after the latter reportedly spoke at an event on Sunday organized by Likud activist Moshe Feiglin, and criticized of US President Barack Obama and called Peace Now "a virus." Ramon said that Ya'alon continuing to sit in forums where significant decisions are made for Israel's future, will be "a sign that Netanyahu agrees with these stances and believes they are legitimate. " "There is no difference between him continuing to sit in the cabinet and Feiglin joining," he continued in a statement "The government must be judged by its actions," he added. "Its policies are the policies of Ya'alon, and the prime minister's actions are consistent with Ya'alon's statement. Everything else is just words by Netanyahu, [Defense Minister Ehud] Barak and others."
