MK Yoni Chetboun (Bayit Yehudi) stressed on Wednesday the importance of helping the weaker sectors of Israeli society.
Speaking during a panel discussion of the Jewish Federations of North America, which was held at the Knesset, Chetboun said, "Everyone talks about the middle class, but there is a second Israel that is not counted. It is important to clarify that Israel is not just Tel Aviv, is first of all Beit Shean and Dimona."
He added, “It’s very nice to talk about the middle class, about its difficulties and challenges, but one must not forget that there is a population here that really lacks the means to make ends meet. The Zionist challenge is located today in the developing neighborhoods and towns.”
