During his press conference Monday, Israel Beiteinu leader and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman attacked MKs using harsh language, specifically lashing out at Labor MK Shelly Yacimovich and journalist Shalom Yerushalmi. "There is no lack of liars, bastards and idiots here, and specifically, you know, it is the arc spreading from Shalom Yerushalmi to Shelly Yacimovich," Lieberman said. Yerushalmi, who was present, tried to defend himself against Lieberman's tirade. Lieberman said "You wrote about me that I personally appointed Justice Minister [Yaakov Neeman]," to which Yerushalmi replied "that is what I think." Lieberman replied, "I also say what I think, and I mean what I say."
