A Yesh Atid candidate for the Holon municipality caused an uproar after he released a clip openly targeting charedim.
In the video, candidate Ilan Gazit warns voters that their low turnout for the October 30th elections would hand the city over to the charedi factions.
“On Election Day you will enjoy a day off, but they will vote. You, the secular people, will go for a picnic, shopping, spend some money, but they will go to vote,” said Gazit in front of a picture of charedim voting.
