Kadima MK Shai: Ya'alon has gone from zoology to virology

Kadima MK Nahman Shai slammed Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon on Thursday after the latter spoke at an event on Sunday organized by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's fiercest critic in the Likud, Moshe Feiglin, and criticized US President Barack Obama. "It's shameful to discover that the only change that has occurred in the former chief of staff since he joined the Netanyahu government is that he has gone from zoology - an expert in snakes - to virology - an expert of political viruses," said Shai in a statement. In the speech, Ya'alon also denounced the power of the press and other "elites" in Israel to make or break politicians and lashed out at the extreme Left. He went on to call Peace Now "a virus."
