Kadima says primaries show Likud's extremism

February 1, 2012 08:53

Opposition party Kadima said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Likud party is "holding Israel's citizens hostage"  with "extreme policies" following Tuesday's Likud primary, in which right-wing party activist Moshe Feiglin garnered 24 percent of the vote.

"The Bibi-Feiglin party will continue to cause the deterioration and isolation of Israel," Kadima said in a statement. "The Likud decided tonight to continue the shared and extreme policies of Feiglin and Netanyahu, which have held Israel's citizens hostage against their will for three years already."

"The Likud is Feiglin and Feiglin is the Likud," Kadima said, touting itself as the "only alternative that can restore sanity to Israel."
