Gafni: Allowance Cuts Like 'Sodom and Gomorrah'

MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) denounced on Monday evening the cuts to children’s allowances, saying, “The sharp cuts in child allowances which will begin tomorrow will hit hundreds thousands of families from all sectors of the Israeli public. This is a cruel and evil move, and this government is a cruel one, the likes of which we have not seen for a long time. Its conduct is reminiscent of Sodom and Gomorrah, when under the guise of ideology, children are starved.”

"I'm surprised by the government ministers who I know oppose this cruel policy but are keeping quiet for an unknown reason,” he added.
