Regev responded: "What a terrible statement it is. These are the people who want unification. Most importantly, Tibi is a human being." This is not the first time that Lieberman is strongly attacking Regev. In an interview with Maariv last October, Lieberman called Regev: "Beast."
Regev posted a comment. "If asked today who is the most hated person on the street, who is the person who brought us tremendous damage and political chaos in the past year and who is the main culprit in the existing social rift in Israel, everyone will vote for Lieberman," said the Minister of Culture and Sports. "Lieberman holds a whole country hostage. What interests him is his ego."
