A government minister attacked the behavior of the head of the Jewish Home party, Naftali Bennett, in a conversation with Arutz Sheva today.
The minister recommended that Bennett stop "locking horns" with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanahu. According to the minister, Bennett levels the same accusations each week, just with a different mask each time.
This week's was Operation Protective Edge, when Israel attempted to draw the teeth of terror in Gaza.
"Bennett is constantly goading Netanyahu, and its a shame. Eventually, Netanyahu will have had enough and he'll throw him out of the government. We know the criticism of Bennett's faction and party over his behavior toward the Prime Minister; he should listen to his friends.
"This is not the way. It is not acceptable to attack the Prime Minister when you are in the government. Meanwhile, Netanyahu will not give Bennett satisfaction, and will not fire him, but if this continues - there will be no alternative."
The warning comes after Bennett carelessly commented this morning that "mistakes were made, and the operation took too long," referring to Operation Protective Edge. "We don't need 51 days to defeat Hamas."
Although seemingly harmless, Bennett has been jabbing Netanyahu over the past week, claiming that Netanyahu did not consult with the Cabinet before Protective Edge, and that the ministers were not prepared before they okayed the operation.
