PM meets with MK Shalom, angers Netanyahu aides

October 11, 2006 19:25

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert met Wednesday afternoon with MK Silvan Shalom (Likud) and updated Shalom on the latest political developments, particularly regarding the Iranian nuclear crisis. Following the meeting, sources close to Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu accused Olmert of intervening in internal Likud matters. In an interview with Army Radio, Shalom said that these were "small, narrow-minded people," and that "because the prime minister saw fit to hold a consultation on Israel's existential national issues, people protest…their whole approach is personal, narrow, and small - but that's more of an indication of the people themselves than of the meeting." The Prime Minister's Office said the meeting took place in the framework of Olmert's consultations with the heads of the opposition.
