      Deri: 'Nationalist' Government Abandoned Jerusalem

      Shas chairman MK Aryeh Deri slammed the members of the Likud and Jewish Home on Wednesday evening, after they all walked out of the Knesset plenum just before a vote on a bill prohibiting negotiations over Jerusalem without the approval of a majority of 80 Members of Knesset.

      Due to the absence of the aforementioned MKs, the bill was rejected as only 12 MKs supported it and 51 MKs opposed. The only MK from the Likud to vote in favor of the bill was Moshe Feiglin. MK Reuven Rivlin, who was present during the vote, did not participate.
