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."
