      Yisrael Beiteinu Petition Against New Mortgage Criteria

      The youth of the Yisrael Beiteinu party petitioned the Supreme Court, Monday, against Housing Minister Ariel Attias' decision to remove the "earning power" (participation in the labor force) component from criteria for the government's affordable housing criteria.

      Chairman Oded Forer of Yisrael Beiteinu Youth said, "The time has come to give equal rights to those who serve, to those who contribute, to those who work - it's time to create a society that produces and not one that perpetuates poverty."
