Former Foreign Minster, MK Avigdor Lieberman said that Israel's apologizing for the actions of IDF soldiers is a serious mistake. Lieberman was Israel's Foreign Minister at the time of the Mavi Marmara incent in 2010, and according to him: "Anyone who has seen the pictures from the Marmara understands without a shadow of a doubt that the actions of the IDF soldiers were self-defense."
