UTJ Threatens: Lapid or Us in Coalition

Rabbi Israel Eichler of United Torah Judaism contacted Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu immediately upon President Shimon Peres's announcement that the PM would be tasked with forming the next government and said that if he created a coalition agreement with Yair Lapid, then the orthodox parties will have no future association with Likud.

"Most of the Likud voters tend toward Shas, United Torah Judaism and the Jewish Home. If Netanyahu will establish a government with Kfar Shmaryahu and North Tel Aviv, along with Bennett, it would be a disaster, " Eichler told Channel 10.
