Shas officials adopted a unified theme on Sunday, arguing that Thursday’s unification deal between Likud and Yisrael Beytenu would cause Likud’s established voter base of traditional Sephardi Jews to abandon the party and flock to Shas.

Party sources also dismissed out of hand reports that Shas might unite with the Ashkenazi haredi party United Torah Judaism, with one official labeling such speculation as “pure nonsense,” in conversation with The Jerusalem Post.
