Report: Livni Proposed Replacing Jewish Home

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni recently proposed that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu replace the Jewish Home (Bayit Yehudi) party in the coalition with Labor or one of the hareidi-religious parties, according to a Friday-morning report by Ma'ariv.

The proposal came up about two weeks ago, during the height of the tension between Netanyahu and Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett over Bennett's remarks concerning the prime minister. The newspaper said Netanyahu was careful not to rule out the proposal.
