Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar on Sunday night denounced Ehud Olmert's very serious attack on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as "outrageous."

Sa'ar condemned the former prime minister for blaming the Israeli government for the impasse in negotiations with the Palestinians, highlighting that Olmert had "not leveled even one word of criticism at the Palestinian Authority despite [Mahmoud Abbas'] deliberate refusal for four years to negotiate with Israel."

Sa'ar also accused Olmert of complicating matters for Israel by offering Abbas far-reaching concessions during his tenure as prime minister, including agreeing to an Israeli withdrawal to the 1967 borders and the partition of Jerusalem as part of a peace deal, which Abbas now considers as a baseline for negotiations.

Sa'ar concluded that Olmert had now become an advocate of the Palestinian Authority, the Israeli government's accuser.
