Yisrael Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman announced on Monday that his party will not be part of the same government as the Religious Zionist party as it is “anti-Zionist”.

Speaking at a party meeting, Lieberman said: “We support the formation of a Zionist coalition. The Religious Zionist party is an anti-Zionist party that advocates a state governed by halacha. We won’t sit with Shas or UTJ under any circumstances because they’re parties that oppress the Chareidi public.”

Leiberman also previously announced that he will not sit in the same government as opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu.

Liberman is apparently relying on the “Zionist” Ra’am party to form a coalition instead of the “anti-Zionist” religious parties.

“Lieberman is an agent of chaos,” Religious Zionism party chairman Betzalel Smotrich said in response. “He spreads poison. He should be completely ignored.”

“Lieberman, the man who once ‘sent the Chareidim to the dump,’ who once hated the Arabs, and who now defames Religious Zionism,” said Religious Zionist party MK Ofir Sofer. “All this in order to obscure the fact that he has zero achievements. It won’t work for you this time, Lieberman.”

  1. can not have an anti Zion leader…impossible, send this fool back to his birth place….how dare this individual complain…what a nasty immigrant that you allowed into Israel

  2. “Lieberman’s New Boycott: We Won’t Sit With The “Anti-Zionist” Religious…” Does this mean he will also not sit down at the same table as his Frum son sits on?

  3. Some advice to Lieberman:
    Move to Birobidzhan, the Jewish homeland in the former Soviet Union.
    There you will have no problem wish religious Jews or Judaism.
    Totally secular!
    You already know the language and there you can easily become prime minister!
    So what are you waiting for?

  4. Do I understand from this that the rasha is excluding himself from every thinkable combination? That is not bad, wish he would have done that a year ago.

  5. Liberman is the pork chop king of Israel. Hi claims to be a zionist, he won’t connect with religious zionists but will sit comfortably with the Arabs.
    Some one explain his head to me?

  6. anti Israel and anti jewish wow….how did this burp end up in Israel, shameful statement for all of us jews and those living in Israel
