MK Hasson Slams Yechimovich Over Silence on Hareidim


MK Yoel Hasson of Tzipi Livni’s Hatenua party slammed Labor chairwoman Shelly Yechimovich on Sunday over her choosing not to condemn the Cabinet’s decision to enact a law that overrides the Supreme Court ruling regarding the Tal Law.

“Another mask was removed from the hypocritical face of Yechimovich, who did not criticize the government's poor decision to continue the inequality in the sharing of the burden,” said Hasson.

"Labor voters should pay attention to the fact that the Labor party leader, who makes her voice heard on any other social issue, chose consciously not to attack the government's cynical exemption of hareidim from joining the army and understand that Yechimovich is not really different from Netanyahu and his associates,” he added.
