Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Sunday harshly criticized politicians who intend to join a Right-wing government that does not recognize the two-state solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict, criticism understood as directed at Defense Minister and Labor leader Ehud Barak. During the cabinet meeting, the prime minister noted that a government that does not accept the establishment of a Palestinian state as a guideline to the peace process would lead to Israel's isolation. In response, Barak's bureau issued a statement on Sunday evening saying that it would be best for Olmert to retire and allow the political system to worry about the country's interests.
