Dichter urges Lieberman to apologize for calling police 'animals'

Public Security Minister Avi Dichter on Sunday urged Israel Beiteinu leader Avigdor Lieberman to apologize for his outburst against the law enforcement establishment on a television interview over the weekend in which he called police "animals." "Lieberman tried to delegitimize the Israel Police," said Dichter, adding that it was an "unacceptable" remark which would make it very difficult for the Israel Beiteinu leader to be given the Public Security Ministry. "It is horrifying when you consider that he is someone who may become a minister again and has been a minister in the past," he continued.
