Barak: Situation a 'ship on stormy seas that needs to be led to safety'

The cease-fire in Gaza is a temporary matter, Defense Minister Ehud Barak implied late Monday night. "Believe me - those who miss Gaza operations needn't worry - they will come," Barak told a Labor party conference in Jerusalem. Israel stands before great challenges, the defense minister said, and as such needs experienced leadership. This is not a reality television show, he stressed, but rather "a ship on stormy seas which needs to be led to safety."
