Labor MK Ami Ayalon officially became a minister-without-portfolio Monday when the Knesset voted 35-11 to approve his appointment. Ayalon will be a member of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's inner security cabinet and will head the ministerial committee in charge of rehabilitating the home front from the Second Lebanon War. In a Knesset session ahead of the vote, the appointment was bashed by MKs from across the political spectrum. "You betrayed the citizens of Israel and crawled to the government," Likud faction chairman Gideon Sa'ar said. "There is no level lower than the level you have fallen to: minister-without-portfolio in a failing government."
