Say what you will, the guy has class. Ynetnews.com reports that Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman took his contrarian, defiant behavior to new heights, or perhaps to new depths, on Monday by flushing the toilet during a radio interview.

The report on Ynet’s Hebrew website, here, includes a 14-second clip of the event, plus an outpouring of reader response at the bottom, about evenly divided between readers who are furious at Ynet (the website of Yediot Ahronot) for attempting to demean the foreign minister, mostly in potty-type invective suggesting that Lieberman has given the media what they deserve, and readers who think he showed his true colors.

A few choice selections:

No. 2: Nu, really. How low can you get? Maybe it was a noise from another room?

No.3: Maybe this is the ringtone on his cellphone.

No. 10: He was showing us what he thinks of the media here and he was right.

No. 60: Showing that Ynet is not CNN

No. 69: Get used to it, he’s the next prime minister

No. 86: A man who can do two things at once?

No. 119: You’ve proven his claim that he is persecuted by the media

No. 120: It’s a good thing he wasn’t interviewed on television

No. 134: Respect! The man works all the time!

No. 147: What bothers me is that his aide has to touch his phone now

No. 148: As much as you try to dump on Lieberman, it won’t help you. He will be the next prime minister. Most of the nation understands that only a true determined Zionist can save this deteriorating state

No. 191: Ynet, you’ve reached the all-time low

No. 206: Dying of laughter! Hilarious!

No. 207: This proves that Lieberman is defecating on all of us

No. 220: Why is this in the culture/entertainment/television section? It’s uncultured, it’s not entertaining and it’s on the radio.

No. 230: This is his fantasy: to flush Hamas down the toilet of history

No. 243: Then you go crying that people are reading Yisrael Hayom

Best biblical reference: No. 210: Ynet, you came to curse but ended by blessing. Look at your readers’ replies. You have lowered yourselves and elevated Lieberman

Runner-up biblical reference No. 162: Lieberman is reenacting the Exodus from Egypt
