Livni Attacks Likud-Beytenu, Jewish Home

HaTnua Chairwoman Tzipi Livni attacked Likud-Beytenu Tuesday afternoon, saying the party has lost its balance. 

"Feiglin represents Likud-Beytenu," said Livni. "This is the same man who said this morning that he was forbidden to speak because it is not good for the campaign and later in the day he's already prostrating on the Temple Mount. This is what our ruling party looks like. The people who represent a more balanced world view were kicked out of Likud."

Livni took the opportunity to also throw punches at the Jewish Home party, saying, "alongside the ruling party another party rose to power, which in a previous life symbolized the beauty of Judaism  and now consists of people who are the extreme of the extreme. One member of the list is speaking out against homosexuals, another member is speaking out against democracy. These are Netanyahu's natural partners."

Livni added that "the Israeli government decided to change our national priorities - the government takes all of our money in order to serve the ideological conception of the extreme right."
