Bayit Yehudi complains to police about Likudnik ad

January 1, 2013 16:39

The Bayit Yehudi and the Likud filed complaints with the police and the Central Election Committee on Tuesday, after an ad calling the party a ghetto and featuring party chairman Naftali Bennett behind barbed wire was posted on an unofficial Likud members' website.

The advertisement, which changed the colors of the Bayit Yehudi logo so it features a yellow star and called the party the "Jewish Ghetto," links to an image on Facebook that reads: "It took 60 years for the knitted kippahs [national-religious population] to break out of the sectorial ghetto in which the National Religious Party imprisoned them. Sixty years until we finally became part of the general Israeli public and were saved from the lonely ghetto in which past leaders locked us."
