Lieberman to Der'i: You're Setting Up Link with Labor


Chairman Avigdor Lieberman of the Yisrael Beyteinu party posted an open letter on his Facebook page to Shas co-chairman Aryeh Der'i, Monday, in which he wrote, "I could not help but be impressed by the fact that your call, last night, to the prime minister to hold coalition talks and reach agreements before the elections is, in fact, preparing the ground for you to link up, after the elections, to a bloc with [Labor party leader Shelly] Yechimovich and the rest of the leftist parties."

Lieberman continued, "Your public call is preparing an alibi for a move against the prime minister and the nationalist camp, who apparently did not respond to you. But you know very well that no candidate for prime minister will hold coalition talks before the election."
