Netanyahu calls on Shas, Israel Beiteinu to leave coalition

Opposition Leader Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday criticized several parties for remaining in the coalition while it is negotiating with the Palestinian Authority. "These concessions will harm Israel's security and future, and this lays a grave responsibility on the shoulders of those parties which remain in the coalition." "I'm talking about Shas and Israel Beiteinu - they see the dangers as we do and they are very much aware of the dangerous consequences of such concessions. We expect all those in [Prime Minister Ehud] Olmert's coalition to draw their conclusions and leave the coalition now." Netanyahu spoke during a Likud faction meeting.
