Peace Now head Yariv Oppenheimer expressed jubilation over Avigdor Lieberman's decision to pull Yisrael Beiteinu out of the coalition. "Good riddance to Lieberman, who posed a strategic threat to the peace process," he said, alluding to the post Lieberman is vacating at the Strategic Affairs Ministry. "The prime minister is now all out of excuses and he must take action to remove outposts, freeze settlements and proceed with the peace process at a redoubled pace." On the other end of the political spectrum, Likud activist Moshe Feiglin congratulated Lieberman and named Shas as the party that would eventually bring about the division of Jerusalem. "It is unclear why Lieberman joined the government, and one must hope that his resignation will rectify this wrong." "Henceforth, the responsibility for the division of Jerusalem rests with Shas," he said.
