Litzman: Lapid’s Only Achievement is the Increase in My Salary


yaakov litzmanMK Yaakov Litzman of Yahadut Hatorah, who was officially appointed as Israel’s Health Minister today, mocked Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid yesterday for helping Litzman upgrade his title from Deputy Minister to Minister, Arutz Sheva reports.

Litzman previously served as Deputy Health Minister with ministerial powers but, following an appeal from Yesh Atid, the Supreme Court ruled that Litzman must be appointed as a full minister or be forced to vacate his post as Deputy Health Minister.

Speaking Tuesday at a business conference at the David Intercontinental Hotel in Tel Aviv, Litzman said he believes Lapid now regrets filing the appeal, Arutz Sheva reports.

“He probably thought the Council of Torah Sages would not allow me to be a minister. This is his only achievement in politics since he founded the Yesh Atid party. Not the economy, not security and not welfare. Only the fact that they added a few shekels to Litzman’s salary. Let him enjoy it,” he said.

  1. The real problem in the Knesset is that there are no term limits. How the same names and faces are always around despite accomplishing NOTHING for the citizens of Israel, is very troubling.

  2. The truth must be said -He is the only one that did something for the public ,all the public, for children , for adults. Because he believes in helping all the citizens not because he has a nice seat to sit on.
    For some people, it is very hard to admit that he is good for all of us.
