MK Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) faced off against Opposition Leader Tzipi Livni in the Knesset on Monday by praising Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for negotiating Gilad Schalit’s release from captivity, one day after Livni publicly slammed the deal.

“The Schalit deal sets a dangerous precedent for the number of murderers freed,” Mofaz said in a special plenum meeting during the last week of the Knesset’s summer recess. “Despite this, I supported an exchange in the last government and the current government. It is our responsibility to bring our soldiers home.”

“I think the right thing was done, considering the circumstances,” he explained.
