Porush: It May Not be Better for Jews in Israel

MK Meir Porush (United Torah Judaism) on Wednesday dismissed a call by presidential hopeful MK Meir Sheetrit (Hatnua) on European Jews to move to Israel, in the wake of the strengthening of extremist parties in the European parliament.

Porush responded to Sheetrit by saying that the situation in Israel for hareidim may not be better than in Europe. “Over there they are interested in preventing the Jews from their share of the budget and here it is done to the hareidim,” he charged.
