LAPID ATTACKS CHAREIDIM: Another Opportunity to Send “Extortionists & Extremists” Back Home!


Yair Lapid, who holds the second slot on the Blue and White party list, did not waste time in attacking chareidim after the Knesset during the night voted to dissolve the Knesset and head to new elections.

Lapid on Thursday, posted another anti-chareidi message on his Facebook page. In his post, he speaks about having a second chance and the opportunity to “send home the extortionists and extremists who say, ‘give us the money from your taxes and get out of our sight’. We aren’t disappearing. We are here. It is our country too. A second chance to make sure Israel remains a democracy. A second opportunity to see to this”.

  1. Does this lowly piece of garbage have anything else to say besides bashing the religious? It seems like the whole purpose of a person who pretends to want to leave the country for everybody is just to put down one group of people Which is far opposite of a true leader

  2. He didn’t say anything against chareidim in general. Just against certain lobbyists who happen to be chareidi. If you think all chareidim back those opinions look at the numbers again, not even close. Frum Jews clearly dont in one block.

  3. I guess freedom of speech is one thing but isn’t this a little much for a national political leader? Would this fly in America?
