Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid said on Tuesday he does not hate ultra-orthodox Jews.

"I can't help but be offended whenever I read or hear somewhere that I hate haredim, Jews or the Jewish religion," Lapid wrote in a blog post on ultra-orthodox website Kikar Hashabat.

"I'm not anti-haredi, I don't hate anyone, I want to live in a country that has a Jewish character," the Yesh Atid leader clarified.
