Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel attacked Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, claiming they lied to leading rabbis in order to receive their blessing before founding the new Hayemin Hehadash party, in an interview on Army Radio Sunday.

"They did something that should not be done," Ariel said. "The promised that they are going to bring new voters, and on those grounds the rabbis approved.
