Lieberman: There Is No Room For Compromise On The Chareidi Draft Law

7

Amid reports that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has reached agreement with the chareidi parties regarding a draft law, Yisrael Beiteinu party chairman, MK Avigdor Lieberman announced that his party will not agree to any concessions regarding the bill that has been approved by the IDF and Defense Minister, and only this bill is acceptable, in its current form.

He concluded, “Likud must decide if it is the party following the Torah of Jabotinsky or a chareidi party in the spirit of the Moetzas Gedolei Torah.”

He added that acceptance of the current bill that was not passed in the current outgoing Knesset will be a condition for his party entering a new coalition.

Channel 20 reported on Monday that PM Netanyahu and the chareidi parties reached “an understanding” on a clause that will help to circumvent the High Court of Justice on the issue of the draft law, but it is yet unclear if the remainder of the coalition partners will be in agreement.

  1. With a bit of luck and a lot of Siyata Dishmaya, it is hoped that this man and his party will either not pass the threshold or just not be needed for the coalition.

    He is the most vocal anti chareidi MK today

  2. Quite a bit of hubris for the leader of a party that’s about to disappear…. A better headline would be: “There is no room for Lieberman.” Iy”H, we won’t be hearing from him from within the next government. At home, he can bark all he wants.

  3. He won’t make threshold, watch.
    He’s basically become a 1-issue angry mocking politician, and I’d be surprised if he garners more than a few crumbs ballots even from left of center secular voters. As crazy as Israeli politics is , I don’t believe voters want a guy like him on a national level at this time.

  4. Crazy guy…..His wife is frum and I wonder what he spoke with Rav Chaim Kanievsky about when he visited him three months ago…..

  5. Rebdons:
    What he spoke with Reb Chaim?
    Lip service, just what like any other politicians do when they want to gain votes, don’t take it too seriously,

  6. He concluded, “Likud must decide if it is the party following the Torah of Jabotinsky or a chareidi party in the spirit of the Moetzas Gedolei Torah.”

    Compelling argument…
