Senior Likud official Danny Danon has been dismissed from the cabinet by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as deputy defense minister, sources said Tuesday night.

The report came as Israel’s security cabinet was meeting in Tel Aviv to determine the next step in Operation Protective Edge.

Danon said he first heard “rumors” of his dismissal via the media early in the morning. By evening, the prime minister said to him simply, “You’re fired,” Danon told an interviewer, adding, ““I won’t accept the weak, leftist spirit of the prime minister.”

The two apparently disagreed strongly over the issue of whether Israel should accept Egypt’s cease fire proposal earlier in the day.

    At last! Someone stood up to this tyranny of stupidity! I always hated pipi for being a secret lefty but here he’s really shown his true colours. The nation is on its feet ready to explode with our soldiers sitting around along the border getting fired at and bibi does NOTHING!

    Israel really is a vassal state.

  5. Sheli Shahal says:

    Danon has his own, private agenda that has nothing to do with the security of Israel and everthing to do with himm wanting to become PM – no matter the means!

    He should be fired. Netanyahu has to try all means for peace. He had no choice but to accept the cease fire.

  13. Sheli Shahal says:

    Because Netanyahu knew the ceasefire will not last for an hour! A very smart move – now the world is quiet – for the time being!

  14. This is the time to stand together, we have enough enemies..

  15. Anyone who thinks there can be peace with Hamas is a fool at best.

  16. You said it brother!! They are a cult of death and said so. People who look for peace with them, like you said, is a fool at best

  17. Now get rid of all the nasty pro-Hamas MKs in the room~

  18. Well BB made a big mistake…..no gas or electricity…

  19. Sometimes an iron fist needs to be disguised in a velvet glove. PM Netanyahu has the mountainous task of preserving both Israel and her public opinion. Both need wise and, at times, delicate strategy.

  20. Can you imagine world sentiment if Netanyahu had not agreed to the ceasefire? He is a brilliant man and harbored no illusions Hamas would make peace. But now, he has proven to the world media, that he tried. Brilliant!

  21. Netenyahu was brilliant. I’ll bet he knew Hamas wd turn it down. He looks better in world opinion

  22. The prime minister is the boss he can fire any one who does not work well with others

  23. One should do like that!

  24. Scott Soffen, you’re my hero.

  25. the senil idiot Peres had has willhave a good friend an aleatto in Netianahu ,do not forget Netiahus roll in the governement of the finali crepato SHARON that even the dead angel did not wonth him.he also was for giving back the jewish setlements .ANAHNU LO NISHKAH VE LO NISLAH

  26. Mark Leaman says:

    53% of Israelies do not want a cease fire we want to cease Hamas. If we have a cease fire it gives Hamas time to replenish their supply for weapons

  27. No danon is sepharadi and know how the mentality of arab work netaniahu dont know how the cursed arab mentality work but in all these year he should know better the arab wan jews dead not peace !!!

  28. Sheli no danon want to finish arab and he is right

  35. Yes PM has final say but why fire someone for stating their different opinion. Danny Danon is a true statesman!!!! He knows that Hamas needs to be smashed once and for all.

  37. Uzi Kattan says:

    It’s time to fire Netanyahu the spineless coward. Danny must be doing a good job and isn’t an ass licker like Tzippi Livni.

  38. Stella Webby says:

    Danny is a brilliant but young. The young lion roared at the wrong time. Bibi is knows his enemy . He knew Hamas would show the world they are truly terrorists with no peace in mind . I believe BiBi and Danny will unite again for the sake of Israel. Praying for both men !

  39. ooooh can you please be united…..cool heads . dont be emotional and who is head will prevail
