Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has lost a key party in his coalition government.
The Israel Beiteinu party quit today to protest Olmert's decision to talk about dividing Jerusalem.
Watch the CBN News report and Pat Robertson's comments on Olmert's coalition government.
Party leader Avigdor Lieberman had warned that if Olmert launched formal talks with the Palestinians about Jerusalem's future, his party would leave the government.Those talks began Monday.
The ultra-orthodox Shas party has said it may also leave. If so, the Olmert government could collapse.
In the meantime, MK Taleb A-Sanaa bid the party a less than fond fairwell.
The Jerusalem Post quoted a-Sanaa as saying, "Good riddance. There was no point in allowing a racist party into the coalition in the first place. They are trying to torpedo all chances for peace."
