Kadima MK Nachman Shai on Monday criticized Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the Knesset Plenum, saying: "What does Barak have left? He doesn't have a party, he doesn't have supporters, he only has a burden. And Netanyahu? The man who promised everything and fulfilled nothing, the man who declared last year that there should be two states for two people and then who maintained one state for two peoples. The man who chose partners who extort him every moment."
Shai was speaking during a Knesset plenum dealing with a proposal by political parties Kadima, UAL-Ta'al, Hadash, and Balad to express a no-confidence motion on the Netanyahu's government regarding the issues of "Netanyahu is isolating Israel through a series of political actions and failures," and "the planning and building in Arab communities."
