Likud: Mofaz 'outburst' against PM was staged theatrics

Likud reacted to Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Shaul Mofaz's (Kadima) attack on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Monday, in which he called Netanyahu a liar. This was a pathetic show that was planned in advance for Mofaz's needs in the (Kadima) primaries," a party spokeswoman said.
"The strongest proof of this," the statement continued, is that Netanyahu himself told Mofaz after his outburst, that he didn't hear him accuse IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz of giving dishonest testimony to the committee. A statement released by the Prime Minister's Office quoted Mofaz accusing Gantz of misleading the committee, which Mofaz vehemently denied.
