Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday evening called Kadima party leader Tzipi Livni "a serial unity refuser," after her party rejected his offer to join a national unity government.
"Livni is a serial unity refuser â€¦ I am still determined to expand the government in light of the national challenges we are facing," Netanyahu told his advisers.
Livni had accused Netanyahu of "arrogance" and a cynical use of the threats Israel is facing after her faction unanimously voted to reject the premier's current offer to join a national unity government.
"She is the last person who can preach after she held a political parlor meeting during the war while missiles were falling," sources close to the prime minister said in response to her criticism.
