Environmental Protection Minister Amir Peretz warned that he will resign from his post if the government continues its current policies.

"The time has come to start speaking about alternatives to the prime minister," he said Saturday night. According to the Peretz, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is "held captive by the most extremist trends…at a time when everything is burning and boiling over around us."

"He's simply paralyzed, he is not running things anymore," Peretz said of the prime minister on Channel 2's Meet the Press.

Peretz accused Netanyahu of making extremist statements and legitimizing those who inflame the atmosphere.

The Hatnua minister continued: "I won't be part of a government that continues in these trends…I won't stay in a government that continues to behave the way it is behaving today."
