Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Tuesday criticized MKs who opposed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's new housing plan presented earlier in the day, saying that the issue should "be put back into perspective" amid Israel's growing economy compared to economic troubles in Europe and the US.

"Look at the crises the European Union is facing. There is now a second plan being implemented to rescue Greece. Look at the economic hardships in the US," Lieberman said. "Here, thank god, we have growth. In terms of macro economics, we're still okay."

"In Europe, they're saying our troubles are troubles of the rich. Let's put things back into perspective," Lieberman added.
