The prime minister and his education minister exchange barbs through statements made by their parties, with each side blaming the other of serving the left wing; ‘It’s 37 degrees Celsius in Jerusalem, which must be affecting the ministers as well. They need to take a vacation before they end up in the hospital,’ says Finance Minister Kahlon.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Bayit Yehudi) have been embroiled in another public confrontation this week, this time over the new Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation (IPBC).
Their latest clash came in the wake of an ongoing dispute between the two over the State Comptroller’s report on Operation Protective Edge and the threat of tunnels from Gaza.
During a government meeting on Sunday, several of the Likud party’s ministers made comments against the IPBC, including Culture Minister Miri Regev who wondered: “What good is the corporation if we can’t control it?”
