Jarring an otherwise routine affair, UTJ MK Yaakov Litzman attacked the incoming coalition, reserving his most heated words for Yesh Atid's chairman MK Yair Lapid, who he claimed, "in the past has organized incitement against the Haredim."

His words were added upon by MK Moshe Gafni who symbolically ripped apart the coalition agreements saying, "terrorist are not harmed the way Bayit Yehudi and Yesh Atid want to harm the Torah students."

In regards to the hot-button topic of equalizing the burden, Litzman declared, "burden, shmurden, no one is going to be drafted."

Left out of the new government in preference for Yesh Atid and Bayit Yehudi, this could foreshadow the Haredi sector's future relationship with the incoming coalition.
