Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, was ousted from the Likud-Beiteinu Knesset list because party chairman Avigdor Liberman suspected him of leaking information to the daily Maariv.

A leak in Liberman’s world, commented the Channel 10 news reporter, is tantamount to betrayal, and so Ayalon did not get the graceful dismissal the two other dismissed members, MK Anastasia Michaeli and tourism minister Stas Misezhnikov received, when Liberman gave them the opportunity to resign on their own.

It should be noted that even after his quick and completely unexpected dumping (according to his Facebook page he heard about it  just moments before the rest of us did) – Ayalon would not say anything negative about his soon to be former boss. That kind of loyalty is rare in Israel’s volatile, dog eat dog politics, and attests to the love and warmth Liberman’s subordinates share for him.

By the way, this was not Ayalon’s first instance of being fed some humble pie by his boss — about a year ago Liberman was so upset about something his deputy had released that he made sure the public knew that he, Liberman, rebuked Ayalon for his conduct.

    I just read that Michaeli poured water on another MK she disagreed with …I think….that it was that woman Zoabi.
