Lieberman believes it's everyone's fault but his

Israel's going to a 3rd election in less than a year, and Avigdor Lieberman, who's refused to help form a coalition, is placing blame on all but himself:
Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman said Wednesday that blame for going to a third election belongs to Likud, Blue and White, Arabs and haredim (the ultra-Orthodox) – and that his own party was the only one that has behaved responsibly.

Speaking at a meeting of his faction in the Knesset, Liberman said that sticking to his decision not to join the government after the first two elections helped the country, because seeing a politician could keep his word has importance to the public.

“Two parties who together have 65 seats bear responsibility for an unnecessary election,” he said. “Beyond ego of who goes first in a rotation, both parties essentially preferred elections to a unity government.”

When asked by The Jerusalem Post if he bore any responsibility for the election, he said “zero percent.” When told that Channel 13’s poll on Monday night found that 26% of the public said he was most to blame, Liberman said such numbers were the fault of the media.
Yup, there's a standout example of a politician - or anyone - not willing to admit he's capable of making mistakes. But what'll be truly awful is if those who've voted for Lieberman till now continue to do so, regardless of how badly he damages Israel's political system along the way, at a time when, again, Iran's posing a threat.
Liberman said that “Blue and White tricked their voters,” because they took action in Knesset committees that helped the haredim and were willing to form a government with the Joint List.

Liberman said in a lengthy Facebook post on Wednesday morning to explain why he attacked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he was responding to attacks on him by journalists whom he saw as Netanyahu loyalists.

“I have a long fuse, but I will not turn the other cheek,” he said.
Unfortunately, he is turning one on the Iran issue, and most journalists in this country are far from supporters of Netanyahu. I'm afraid, based on how laughable his defenses are, that's exactly why his alleged critique of Blue & White is all for naught. Besides, he made a vote-sharing deal with them in the past election.

Who knew Lieberman would turn out to be the worst thing that could happen to Israel's political system?
