Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman fiercely condemned Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's support for transferring tax money to the Palestinian Authority on Monday but he said he would not remove his Israel Beiteinu party from the coalition in protest.
Lieberman spoke at a faction meeting of his party after Netanyahu's associates hinted that the transfer would take place soon. He criticized reporters who misinterpreted the opposition to the transfer that he declared last week as an ultimatum.
