The Secretary General of the Labor Party, MK Yehiel (Hilik) Bar, criticized the campaign against “hareidi-zation” that is being spearheaded by his party in conjunction with the Meretz Movement in the Jerusalem Municipal Council race.
In an interview with Arutz Sheva, MK Bar emphasized that although the list of Meretz and Labor members is a joint list, the campaign is not a joint effort. “I really don’t like this. Unfortunately, I was not part of the campaign planning and preparation, and immediately afterward I expressed my opinion. I don’t like this campaign. It is neither healthy nor correct, nor is it what we need to focus on. It pains me things are so.”
