Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Tuesday reprimanded Science, Culture and Sports Minister Ghaleb Majadle of his Labor party for boycotting the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday in protest over Israel's operation in the Gaza Strip. In a letter to Majadle, Barak said he sees the decision "with much severity" and "believes that this conduct does not correspond with your responsibilities as a minister in Israel's government." "As a minister representing the Labor party it is expected of you to behave in an official and level-headed manner, and that you fulfill your due role as a member of the government of Israel," added Barak.
