MK Gamliel Levels Sharp Criticism of Foreign Ministry Strike


Member of Knesset Gila Gamliel, who coordinates the Likud Beytenu faction in the Knesset Finance Committee, criticized, Tuesday, the strike by Foreign Ministry employees around the world. Calling their demands legitimate, she said Israelis abroad are suffering from a "mortal and exaggerated blow".

Citing the case she witnessed of a girl who went to a Chabad house in Thailand because she had lost her passport and had nothing to live on, Gamliel asked, "Where is the minimal degree of responsibility? We're fortunate to have Chabad House."
