Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar on Sunday slammed as "scandalous" the critical comments about the government made by Ehud Olmert and Tzipi Livni at the Saban Forum in Washington over the weekend.
Former prime minister Olmert, and Livni who recently became the leader of the new Tzipi Livni Party, both criticized the government for its recent decision to approve 3,000 new units in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
"This is irresponsible behavior on the part of members of the opposition such as Olmert, after the hate speech against Israel at the United Nations," Sa'ar told Channel 10.
Sa'ar branded their behavior as "outrageous and irresponsible," adding "this show why they should stay out of politics."
