Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday rejected Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's criticism of Likud ministers who spoke out against the establishment of a parliamentary committee to probe funding of left-wing NGOs.

"It is important in a democratic state to allow various opinions. The Likud is united in the need to act against organizations which operate illegally against Israel and the IDF; however, there are a number of opinions on what the right way to enact this policy is," Netanyahu told Lieberman.

"The Likud is a democratic and pluralistic party and not a dictatorship of one opinion. All of the Likud ministers are concerned for the security of the country and its citizens and they don't need anyone's approval," Netanyahu added.
