Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman praises MK Eli Avidar of his Yisrael Beytenu party, after a public tiff that saw the latter threaten to vote against the new government and to break away from the party in protest of not receiving a ministerial portfolio.

Liberman says Avidar “did a good job” in weekly protests over the past year against Benjamin Netanyahu’s rule near the prime minister’s Jerusalem residence on Balfour Street.

Avidar sits alongside Liberman, indicating the two have made amends.

“We conquered Balfour like the Bastille” in France, Liberman boasts.
