Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak closed a long and critical essay for Ynet with, “Bravado and empty rhetoric is not the way to proceed and will only make Israel weaker and minimize its ability to act in self-defense. We must all expect more from this ‘coalition of change.'”

Barak's Dec. 5 editorial regarding Israeli policy toward the Iranian nuclear threat was aimed mainly at Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. Barak criticized the conduct of government leaders on the Iranian issue in light of the failing and worrisome nuclear talks in Vienna and the tension he said the government is creating with the United States.
