MK Litzman: I Won’t Sit With Lapid


Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman (UTJ) on Tuesday said that he would not sit together in a coalition with MK Yair Lapid.

On Tuesday, Israel’s Maariv newspaper reported that varous UTJ sources had said that if Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu cannot form a coalition, they would be willing to join a coalition led by the Blue and White’s Benny Gantz and Lapid – as long as they cancel the rotation planned for the role of prime minister.

On Tuesday morning Litzman responded to Maariv’s article: “I don’t dream of sitting in a coalition which has Lapid in it… I’m not a destroyer of Israel. Someone who can embarrass and shame me is not someone I’m friends with and I won’t sit with him.”

“I absolutely support Netanyahu and may he come out innocent.”

    • Kiruv is Kiruv and politics is politics,

      While in privacy one must not judge any Jew and try the very best to bring them closer to yiddishkeit, in politics concerning the survival of true Judaism in the holy land of Israel, one may not be lenient.

    • Democracy where? Israel does NOT have a democracy and never did. The self-appointed for life judges are best proof of this. Besides, Dovid Hamelech agreed with Litzman: uvmoshav leitzim lo yoshav.

  1. Why burn bridges before the election?

    Yes Lapid is a terrible person but if he is R’L able to form a coalition and willing to either (1)offer compromises to the Charidei or (2)not offer compromises and form/be in a coalition with someone else why rule out option (1) now?

    Israeli Finance Minister Yair Lapid, in a post on his Facebook page on Erev Yom Kippur
    “I have what to apologize for, Master of the Universe, but not for mistakes we [in the Yesh Atid party] made, but for what we have not yet changed,” Lapid wrote on his page.

    “As long as there is no civil marriage and public transportation on Shabbat because of people who think they speak in your name, we have what to change. As long as we have not completed the historic process of drafting chareidim and enabling them to enter the workforce, we have what to change.”
