Vice Premier Silvan Shalom expressed support for Kadima leader Tzipi Livni during a conference in Beersheba on Monday, saying that reports of an arrest warrant issued against her in the UK were "scandalous."
"Coalition and opposition must unite" against the "terrorists who walk around unhindered," he said, adding that the world must be reminded that IDF Operation Cast Lead successfully restored quiet in the South.
Turning to Livni, who attended the conference, the vice premier said: "Where Cast Lead is concerned, we are all Tzipi Livni."
Former defense minister Amir Peretz and Science Minister Daniel Herschkowitz also attended the conference.
