Former defense minister and Yisrael Beytenu chairman Avigdor Liberman criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his Facebook page on Thursday morning: "Yesterday we heard Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's dramatic message about stopping the transfer of Qatari money to Hamas activists in Gaza."

"Finally it seemed that the prime minister also understands that we must stop paying protection money to terrorists," he continued. "But what happened? Two days passed and his resolution is already forgotten. It was a passing decision. Hamas threatened and Netanyahu folded. t's clear now that as far as Netanyahu is concerned, an attempt to assassinate an IDF officer and riots on the Gaza border does not justify the cancellation of protection money."

"Hamas leaders feel safe and secure, and the Israeli government is afraid," Liberman wrote. "Absolute confusion!"
