Shas leader Arye Deri immediately countered statements by Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman attacking the role of religion in Israel Friday, calling his party the only home for voters aiming to preserve a Jewish identity.

Speaking on Army Radio following Liberman's press conference, Deri declared "Shas is our home," making a play on the name of Liberman's party, Yisrael Beytenu (Israel our home).

Shas, he continued, "is the only social party that looks out for the needy and those who maintain a Jewish identity."
