Prime Minister Ehud Olmert reprimanded MK Ophir Paz-Pines on Wednesday over remarks Paz-Pines made criticizing the decision-making process during the last stages of the Lebanon war, Army Radio reported. "Whoever does not feel he is part of the government's activities needs to consider his next step," Olmert told Paz-Pines Wednesday morning. "You are as responsible as the rest of us." In response, Paz-Pines apologized for insulting the government ministers, but emphasized that he would not retract his statements on the government's operation near the end of the war, saying that in his opinion, the government had some soul-searching to do.
