Lapid Slams Opponents for Having Ties With Chareidim


yair-lapidWith hours to the elections, it’s knives out all around. Yair Lapid criticized both PM Netanyahu and prime ministerial hopeful Herzog for making deals with the chareidim and avoiding talking about an equal share of the military burden – an issue dear to his party.

On a tour of Netanya, Lapid said that “politics are intended to help people make their lives better, not so that fellas can close dirty deals behind our backs. Both Bibi and Buji [Netanyahu and Herzog] are selling the equal share of the burden, returning budgets to yeshivot and closing deals with the Chareidim – all at our expense.”
