Kadima harshly criticized Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Thursday for warning Syria it would lose in a future war with Israel.

Lieberman warned Syrian President Bashar Assad, saying that in an event of war with Israel, "not only will you lose the war, you and your family will no longer be in power."

Israel is playing with fire, Kadima said in a statement, asserting that "without any clear leadership, every minister irresponsibly issues war threats."

"Instead of pacifying the situation, Israel is fanning the flames," the statement read.

"Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu must rise above his political problems and demonstrate responsibility over the future of the state. Israel is stronger than the fiery, irresponsible statements of those who are in power," Kadima said.

Meretz chairman Haim Oron also condemned Lieberman's remarks, and called him "a war minister."

"Instead of settling conflicts, the minister and his deputy systematically create them," Oron said.

Labor MK Eitan Cabel blasted the foreign minister and called on Netanyahu to fire Lieberman.
