MK Gafni Joins Facebook


MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) recently joined Facebook and opened an official page. The page has received only a few dozen “likes” since it was created last month.

MK Gafni has in the past attacked Finance Minister Yair Lapid for using Facebook as a substitute for speeches in the Knesset. Last month, when Lapid failed to show up for a Knesset session about the budget, Gafni shouted at Deputy Finance Minister Mickey Levy, who showed up in Lapid's place, “The Finance Minister discovered that the numbers are more powerful than Facebook, so he writes on Facebook and sends you to the battle front. He is hiding. He’s a coward. Where’s the money, Mr. Yair Lapid? Let him come here and give answers. Not send you to the front.”
