Barak to PM: Reconsider decision to expel worker children

Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Wednesday requested Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu reconsider the government decision regarding the expulsion of 400 children of foreign workers under the age of 5. 
Barak, who had not participated in the vote, asked Netanyahu to prevent the expulsion, saying, "The state of Israel cannot do such a thing, it will scar the entire Israeli society." The defense minister added that such a move is not in line with Judaism and is inhumane.
